Travels in Light is the name of the concert being created by Norwich-based open access choir The Voice Project.

It is the final part of a trilogy of performances about sleep, dreaming and waking, and follows on from the choir's Beyond Stars performance at Norwich Cathedral in January this year and The Arms of Sleep, a choral sleepover at the Assembly House which was part of the 2017 Norfolk and Norwich Festival.

The inspiration for the new concert came from a quote from the painter Paul Nash - 'The divisions we may hold between the waking world and that of the dream are not there; they are porous; in a word, they are not there,'

The Voice Project's co-director Jonathan Baker said 'We've been developing the trilogy for about three years although the original idea came a while before that. As we've gone along, ideas for parts two and three have developed from the previous show so we feels it is very much three parts of one whole.'
