Temple Songs

The Beautiful Machine

The Beautiful Machine is an a-cappella chorus led by composer and director, Jennifer Bell.

Throughout Mayfest, the ensemble will be staging original songs and soundscapes exclusively for staff working in the Bristol Temple Quarter. To mark the end of this series of flash close-harmony concerts, they are inviting all comers to an intimate, one-off performance in an empty office.

As the sun goes down, this song cycle gives voice to the unspoken dreams and desires we have to keep the lid on in the workplace. Temple Songs is an intricate, heartbreaking celebration of the quiet victories of every day.

Produced by Theatre Bristol as part of a series of Bristol Temple Quarter Commissions, coordinated by Watershed, Knowle West Media Centre and MAYK, with support from Bristol City Council and Arts Council England.
