After receiving a 2010 Herald Angel Award for 'Songs of Ascension', US composer, singer, filmmaker and theatre artist Meredith Monk returns to the Edinburgh International Festival with her latest music-theatre work, On Behalf of Nature.

A poetic meditation on the environment, On Behalf of Nature evokes the Buddhist notion of different realm categories, uniting heaven and earth by way of human beings. Drawing further inspiration from writers who have sounded the alarm on the state of our global ecology, Monk and her acclaimed Vocal Ensemble create a space where human, natural and spiritual elements are woven into a delicate whole, illuminating the interconnection and interdependency of us all.

Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh International Festival 2013

Review by Clare Brennan in the Guardian
