Concrete Opera, a libretto about a new tower being built in London. 

28pp, Risograph,  £6 + delivery

 

Subtitled ‘Tragicomic Songs for the City of London’, Concrete opera is a libretto I wrote telling the story of a tower being built in London. It deals with the various consequences that this new building might entail: gentrification, eviction, and revitalisation are all on the menu.

This project was very kindly supported by the Swiss Cultural Fund UK.
