Souvid Datta directs a poignant, emotional promo for Messengers.
Soumik Datta 'Empty Places' by Souvid Datta
The third episode of the Silent Spaces music series, in which composer/performer Soumik Datta held performances in some of the UK's leading venues when they were unable to open, takes us to a deserted Royal Albert Hall, on its 150th anniversary during the winter lockdown of 2021.
Souvid Datta directs the performers thoughout iconic building, with a duet of strings ringing through vacant corridors, voices echoing through empty aisles - and a lone dancer appearing through the shadows of the great hall. Each artist leads the viewer along a rare journey through the venue’s hidden corners, dressing rooms, rooftops and up, towards the majestic Albert Hall stage.
Soumik composes, song-writes and performs on sarod while singing lead vocals and rendering a powerful spoken word poem calling attention to the plight of creatives during the pandemic and our collective need for shared cultural spaces.
