Chance to get involved in a community arts project to welcome the G7 to Cornwall
WHAT IS THE G7 SUMMIT?
PYTH YW AN PENNKUNTELLES G7?
Prime Ministers and Presidents from the world’s leading democracies will come together at Carbis Bay to address shared challenges, from beating coronavirus and tackling climate change, to ensuring that people everywhere can benefit from open trade, technological change and scientific discovery.
WHAT IS SONG OF THE SEA?
PYTH YW KAN AN MOR?
While not uncontroversial here, the Summit is nevertheless a chance for the people of Cornwall to have a lot of fun while sending a welcoming yet strong message to the world’s most powerful democracies. Song of the Sea will invite the world leaders out of their conference rooms and into our uniquely beautiful landscape, showing just how creative and collaborative Cornwall can be, and by means of an ingeniously simple yet powerful performance, push the issue of the environment to the forefront of the Summit’s thinking.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN?
A thousand local people form a socially distanced grid on the vast and stunning expanse of Hayle Beach. Each has a sustainably sourced whirly tube, the simplest of musical instruments. One by one they become a huge ensemble making a beautiful plaintive cry across the sand to the G7 leaders using only our bodies, fine Cornish air and repurposed marine litter.
HOW DO I TAKE PART?
FATEL GEMERAV RANN?
Follow the Book Now button to sign up. Once you’re signed up, we’ll be able to send you your own whirly tube a week or so before the performance with full instructions of how to practice and what to do on the day. Practice at home, enjoy exploring the sounds of the instrument and build up a bit of stamina – it takes a bit of effort! Then on the day we’ll spread out across the beach, and perform as one with no rehearsal, just following the simple instructions you’ll receive with your tube.
