HANNAH PEEL
AND THE PARAORCHESTRA

PRESENT THE UNFOLDING

A major new work by Mercury Prize 2021 nominated artist Hannah Peel, commissioned by and performed with Paraorchestra and Charles Hazlewood, The Unfolding takes a cyclical journey from the very atoms of human existence and the awakening of life, through to our eventual re-folding back into the elements.

This live performance of Hannah Peel and Paraorchestra’s album The Unfolding, recorded in March 2021 and due for release in Spring 2022, features a glorious 14-piece ensemble of acoustic and electronic instruments as well as a human voice for a transportive, playful, and otherworldly sonic experience. The Unfolding follows the huge success of Hannah’s 2020 album release Fir Wave.

The Unfolding marks our first headline performance of bluedot 2022, and our Thursday Opening Concert since The Hallé in 2019.
