With 100 years of suffrage in the UK, the ensemble The Art of Change will be celebrating this event and exploring the stories that led to this historical moment alongside its implications in modern society.

The performance combines dialogue with existing art songs, folk songs, and newly written songs, by composers Eve Harrison and Ella Jarman-Pinto. The piece covers three historic eras through the eyes of four women: the leveller Elizabeth Lilburne, the suffragette Emily Wilding Davison, and two fictional modern MPs, interweaving their stories to explore how the voices of women have been heard over time.
