Stitch: an a cappella opera for 3 women & 3 sewing machines
Music: Juliet Palmer Text: Anna Chatterton Direction: Ruth Madoc-Jones
From the abuse of the sweatshop to the fantasy of costume and the empowerment of sewing-it-yourself, the sewing machine has been a force for liberation and exploitation since its invention in the 19th century. Anchored in the sounds and rhythms of sewing, Stitch uncovers the emotional layers of the relationship between woman and barely-tamed machine.
