During his Creative Health Residency, Reload will be exploring non-verbal storytelling through rap music and movement fused with orchestral composition, electronic music, and acoustic folk.
The perspective of a young black father living in an inner-city neighbourhood, his project Father/Hood explores themes such as poverty, ‘adultification’, hope and aspirations, and special educational needs (SEN) through collaborative efforts with live musicians, electronic producers, and practitioners from the education and health sectors.
Reload returns to Britten Pears Arts following his Residency in 2019 during which he created the EP, ‘The Book Of Malachi’. The key aim of this Residency is to complete his follow-up EP, ‘The Book of Leo’, but more than that, Reload wants to combine his roles in education and writing/performing to create a holistic piece of work that can impact a variety of audiences.
Creative Health Residencies provide time and space for creators at all stages of their careers; a supportive environment to create, be curious, and try out new ideas. Open Sessions offer a unique chance to go behind the scenes and experience work-in-progress created during the Residency.
