Breath Control

Caroline Wright  

Cambridge Science Festival, Cambridge Junction
Clifton Way

Breathe in…
And out…
And… don’t… stop.

Breath Control is about the inhalations and exhalations that form the melody, rhythm and punctuation of our everyday existence.

Although breathing is universal, it is personal. It is a sustaining action that can be both conscious and subconscious, completely taken for granted and the sole focus of life itself.

From research undertaken with the Breathe Easy Group at Adam Brooks Hospital, Breath Control will be performed by the first ever Breath Choir. Bringing together scientific, medical, musical and philosophical perspectives based on our respiratory rates and patterns, this performance will cause you to – literally – catch your breath.

Breath Control features an acclaimed artistic team; directed by Emma Bernard and choreographed by Stephanie Schober with musical direction and composition from soprano Laura Wright.

Breath Control is supported by Cambridge Junction and subsidised through public funding through an Arts Council England National Lottery grant with additional in-kind support from Life of Breath, Bristol.
