Mind the Gap head out to the moors
Months and months of planning are coming together for Jez Colborne and the team at Mind the Gap this week (21-23 June 2012) as Irresistible takes place at the Cow and Calf quarry. I’ve been supporting this project as the creative producer and, without bias i can say that it promises to be a great event (as long as the weather holds out! *bp crosses all available extremities*)

Irresistible is a symphony of sirens set within the rural beauty of the Cow & Calf on Ilkley Moor. It’s a large-scale musical experience that combines warning sirens and choral music with projections on rock faces and dramatic lighting to create a breathtaking and once-in-a-life-time experience.
Featuring a cast of more than 30 actors and musicians, Irresistible includes seven new songs inspired not only by sirens but by blues, country, rap and hip hop. It promises to be a musical mix that will tell a story through music, movement, drama and light.
We did an R&D showing back in October of 2010 which wowed the culture team from the Olympics so we get to take the show down to the National Theatre, South Bank Centre and the Liberty Festival in September too – watch out for news on these dates.
Hope to see you in Ilkley!
