Institutions of the Flesh is a music-theatre performance exploring relationships between the human voice, our bodies and the social structures in which we live. It's about how each and every breath we take connects us to the institutions of love, labour, devotion and dissent that have shaped human history.

Developed by the extraordinary singer/composer, Alwynne Pritchard and the Grammy-nominated Alpaca Ensemble, this piece uses texts by William Blake and Heine Müller. The performance will be recorded by the BBC.
