An exciting show with music at the heart, complimented by visual arts, film and theatre to immerse the audience in an emotional journey

 

Why are we fundraising?

When’s the last time you cried, or felt emotional whilst watching a film?  Very often the most tear jerking sections are the ones where there is no text, but the images are complimented by music.  Take that music away, and the sequence is no longer emotionally moving.  This is the power of music.

Music is packed with emotions, however many people feel that they cannot connect with it because the experience is only auditory, and without visuals they cannot understand it as it is abstract. 

At Jam-bourée, we are developing an exciting multi-sensual show, with music at the heart, complimented by visual arts, film and theatre to create a story to immerse the audience in an emotional journey, transporting the audience to another place and time.  We focus on stories which every member of the audience can relate to, and can create an emotional connection to.  Our first show is about the journey from Syria through Europe, looking at the challenges a refugee faces, the relationships they make and lose, and the hostility and generosity they encounter.  

Many people have very strong stances political topics, and there can be much confusion for the general public over political issues: for example with the crisis in Syria, many people do not understand the issues faced by refugees, and although many feel sorry for the people of that country, they are still very strongly set against allowing people in the country.  Looking at these topics through engagement in the arts will help people to rethink their opinions and question their own beliefs.  There is nothing currently like this on offer to audiences, so it is a ground breaking opportunity.

Who are we?

We have a creative team of some of the UKs brightest talents, who have toured around the UK and abroad.  We also have a pool of some of the worlds top musicians, as well as a marketing director, who has previously worked for various arts organisations.  

 

How you can help

All funds raised will go towards the making of the film, which is created from the music, as well as towards the costs of the set design, costumes for the actors, piano hire, equipment hire and venue hire.
