Hi, my name is Jez Colborne and I'm an actor, musician and all-round performer. Find out more about me.
I'm absolutely mad about sirens. Not the fire engine or ambulance types - I mean wide-area warning sirens. My project Irresistible will use lots of types of sirens to create a symphony.
Mind the Gap are helping me with Irresistible. Over the last 10 years I’ve done loads of shows with Mind the Gap and it’s always great when we work together.
The project is funded by Unlimited* which is part of the Cultural Olympiad to celebrate the Olympics in 2012 - thanks to those guys!
This blog is a place to share my thoughts and experiences on my journey to creating Irresistible. I hope you enjoy it! If you've got ideas, suggestions or thoughts about my project I'd love to hear from you so please leave all your comments!
Irresistible is one of the final 29 Unlimited commissions that will be presented as part of the London 2012 Festival.
Unlimited is principally funded by The National Lottery through the Olympic Lottery Distributor and is delivered in partnership between London 2012, Arts Council England, Creative Scotland, Arts Council of Wales, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and the British Council.
