Outspoken Jazz Still Growing

What’s it like to lose your voice box after throat cancer? And how can you give back a voice that has been taken away? Shout at Cancer is a charity dedicated to supporting people to find their voice after laryngectomy, the surgical removal of the voice box.

IOE, UCL's Faculty of Education and Society, and Shout at Cancer present the Laryngectomy Choir, who will give a powerful performance of original pieces that explore the impact and effects of this life changing procedure.

Outspoken Jazz still Growing was created through a series of collaborations with spoken word artist Bruce Sherfield, jazz vocalist Zara McFarlane and the Peter Edwards Trio.

The performance will be followed at 8.45pm by a Q&A moderated by Prof. Evangelos Himonides, with the Laryngectomy Choir participants, Prof. Martin Birchall (UCL Laryngology) and Shout at Cancer founder and director, Dr. Thomas Moors.

This event is part of UCL Culture’s Performance Lab, where artists, researchers and students explore how live performance can animate research – and how research can inspire art.

Running time: 2 hours
