Programme Note

VTB-Capital Spirit of Cornwall is multi-sensory show garden created for the Chelsea Flower Show. The design is inspired by Barbara Hepworth's sculpture garden in St. Ives and Geyer's composition The Bronze Garden. For the display of the garden, Geyer was commissioned to create a reimagining of the composition to incorporate a mezzo-soprano and dancer, to be performed within the garden itself.
