It is built into the fabric of art forms such as dance, theatre and film-making to ask questions about the world and the nature of humanity.
Lepus take this attitude and apply it to their primary medium, music. Particularly the traditional music that formed a large part of Green’s upbringing. Often drawn to difficult and challenging topics, recent shows have examined; migration, gender portrayal in art, narcotics and the nature of time.
Lepus’s first production – Flit, toured extensively in the UK and Australia, garnering critical praise and nominations for Best Song and Best Album at the BBC folk Awards.
Commissioners and production partners have included: Edinburgh International Festival, The Barbican London, Perth International Festival, Australia, Opera North, The Kronos Quartet, Creative Scotland, Arts Council England, The PRS for Music Foundation.
