Lads in Their Hundreds is a reflection on war in music and poetry, devised by Iain Burnside, who is a pianist, broadcaster and teacher at Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Lads in Their Hundreds was created for the students of the Guildhall School, receiving its first performances in 2009, then revised for further performances in 2010. These performances were filmed, as were all the rehearsals and interviews with the creator/director, producer, designer, performers.
Extracts from the filmed materials will be shown during the 'performance' element of DH2010's opening session on Wed 7 July, and used as illustrations in a conversation about performance and research. This conversation will be chaired by Professor Barry Ife, Principal of the Guildhall School, and will include Iain Burnside himself, and also the film-maker Cordelia Donohoe and one of the performers, Anna Livermore.
