Building bridges to the modern world for local audiences. Michael Finnissy writes “I feel, very strongly, that in this area, a large scale dramatic works such as my 75’ ‘Mankind’  would create more interest than a simple concert. The piece, based on a mediaeval morality play  originating from East Anglian text) has any number of resonances for a contemporary audience, dealing with issues of socio-political skullduggery, self-interest, and remedies to correct the wrong-doing” The piece will involve a professional baritone and ensemble, amateur actors and a choir, the last being  Cantamus enthused  through the previous CoMA Festival.  ‘Mankind’ will be billed as a ‘major event’, and as well as involving local forces (actors and choir) will ‘out-reach’ to drama students, for example of the 6th-form college in North Walsham, and theatre-goers throughout north Norfolk.  IXION ensemble will be available to build on interest generated with the aim of establishing on-going new music making activities in the region
