Running alongside the world premiere of Lost in Thought this September, the Guildhall School of Music & Drama is hosting a symposium bringing together artists, researchers and those with an interest in mindfulness and its relationship to the arts and to explore its practice and potential.
Building on the Guildhall School’s pioneering development and research on mindfulness, the day will include contributions from the creative team of Lost in Thought, a roundtable of mindfulness practitioners and a focus on audience experience and engagement in the opera. The day will be of particular interest to both those who are interested in the practice and for those who participated in a performance of Lost in Thought.
