A brand-new musical touring show that combines a wide range of art forms to create an immersive and exhilarating performance with a virtual 32-piece Gypsy Orchestra.

“Res Publica” is a brand-new musical touring show from acclaimed South West band The People’s String Foundation, (virtuoso violinist Ben Sutcliffe and co-founder and composer Zaid Al-Rikabi). During this piece the band packs a 32-piece Gypsy Orchestra into a suitcase and takes them on tour inviting the audience on an incredible journey of discovery.

Using music, puppetry, art, cinematography and animation all set to the backdrop of a “Virtual Orchestra,” (recorded at The Hall for Cornwall, in 2018) “Res Publica” is a unique project that combines many art forms to create an immersive and exhilarating show.

The second half of the show offers the audience the chance to hear The People’s String Foundation’s most popular songs and compositions from their time working as musical directors for companies such as Kneehigh and Rogue Theatre and The Minack.

Electrifying performance from a band that has everything – Crisp melody lines and improvisation to match
— Dave Phillips, Teignmouth Jazz
