Big Art Week – Bleasdale

 

Bleasdale chose No Place Like by Kerry Andrew.

No Place Like is a brand new commission written specially for Ten Pieces by Kerry Andrew about home and place.

The story behind No Place Like

The piece was created from words sent in by Ten Pieces students who completed a literacy exercise asking them to think about their home.

Kerry Andrew used the words they sent in to create a long poem which then formed the basis for No Place Like.

No Place Like showcases the amazing range and power of the musical instrument all of us are born with – the voice.
