The UK premiere of Voices of the Amazon is currently in rehearsals at Studio Wayne McGregor at Here East. The show is narrated by Emmy, Golden Globe and Tony Award-winning Jeremy Irons and has an international cast including six performers from Brazil, the USA and Greece. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the company in rehearsal below!

Voices of the Amazon will open at Sadler's Wells on 4 July until 8 July following performances in Moscow from 14 to 16 June. The show will then perform at Latitude Festival 13-16 July and Singapore 28-30 July. There are also plans to go to Australia and Hong Kong then do a UK Tour either later this year or early next year, including performances at the Eden Project.

Voices of the Amazon is set in the Amazon Rainforest and, through dance, music and sounds recorded from the Amazon Rainforest, tells the story of two sisters and their overwhelming love for each other. The story also highlights the damaging effects of deforestation and the loss of renewable medicines and plants, and aims to engage audiences with these global environmental issues facing our world. The production is supported by WWF and the Eden Project along with science consultant Alexander Van Tulleken (CBBC's Operation Ouch, Channel 4's How to Lose Weight Well).

Voices of the Amazon was created by Sisters Grimm, who are Grammy-nominated Ella Spira who has written the score and former Royal Ballet dancer Pietra Mello-Pittman who is directing. The show is choreographed by world renowned choreographer Helen Pickett (Resident Choreographer for Atlanta Ballet and former dancer with William Forsythe's Ballett Frankfurt). Sisters Grimm produced the highly successful sell-out show INALA, set in Africa, choreographed by Mark Baldwin and featuring Ladysmith Black Mambazo and dancers from Rambert and the Royal Ballet.
