“A beautiful and thought-provoking piece of work. It is oil, poetry, eulogy and video game all at once. And it’s never less than fascinating.” – The Telegraph

On Saturday, 1 April 2017 from 7pm to 9pm the London Games Festival will host a revival performance of The Chinese Room’s sell-out show Dear Esther Live ahead of its UK tour later in 2017.

Dear Esther Live is the world’s first live play-through and performance of a video game, featuring the live score from BAFTA-winning composer Jessica Curry, as well as live electronics, a player, a soprano, a string quartet, a pianist and an actor.

The concert takes place at the historic Church of St John-at-Hackney. Google maps link
