Patrick Dineen, composer for Christmas Show, Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf, performs in Unity Theatre’s Dark Dark Wood
Regular Unity Theatre and Action Transport Theatre Christmas show collaborator, composer Patrick Dineen will use the setting of Dark Dark Wood to continue his own exploration of music inspired by dark fairy tales on Thursday December 15 at 8pm.
Patrick Dineen is a composer, lyricist and orchestrator. He began in music began by touring and recording with his own band Kan Kan and then ran a tango nightclub in London’s West End while writing songs and music for fringe theatres. His work led him to becoming a freelance composer for theatre, TV radio, and film and subsequently being invited to study with Stephen Sondheim in his Master Classes in Music Theatre at Oxford University. Since then he has written many scores, for theatre, ballet, TV, radio, independent film as well as large-scale site-specific projects.
Patrick said: "I'm excited to be writing and developing music which thematically links to the music I’m writing for Little Red, I've always been fascinated by the darker side of fairy tales, and this project has allowed me to go deeper and further into the imagination.”
Working with Action Transport Theatre and Katie Scott, a designer from Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, the Dark Dark Wood draws on visual ideas from the Christmas show, Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf. The theatre is delighted to have received a grant from the PRS Foundation, which has made the series of events possible.
