Video June 2014 - As part of the Starless and Bible Black programme, Dylan Thomas’s poem ‘And Death Shall Have No Dominion’ was sung on the streets of New York by a 'synchronised headphone choir'. The setting for the poem was composed by Pete M Wyer.
The centenary of the famed Welsh poet Dylan Thomas is a great opportunity for the British Council to complement the work and investment of national partners in Wales.
The title of this programme, Starless and Bible Black, is inspired by the poet's work. British Council Wales is leading the co-ordination and development of this programme worldwide.
This programme is in a spirit of mutuality, exchange and long term partnerships. By showcasing high quality Welsh work abroad, we will create lasting cultural relations and impact.
The majority of the programme will take place in five countries; the USA, Canada, Argentina, India and Australia. Activities will include collaborative performances, master classes and educational workshops for teachers and practitioners.
