Anima – Singing The Building

Mon-12-Jun 1pm

Creativity and Wellbeing Week

There is no sit down performance today; instead acapella group Anima have a roving brief to sing-the-building.  Starting at Central Hall, singing whilst on the move and stopping at selected points they bring the joy of song to new corners of St Thomas’ Hospital.

Anima means ‘soul’ and ‘breath of life’ they are a stunning acapella quartet , singing inspirational songs of enchantment and soul quests, a magical fusion of jazz and soul. The Anima acapella quartet cover a wide musical terrain, from the exhilarating up beat energy of jazz, through rhythmic soul numbers, to haunting Irish folk.

About Creativity and Well-being Week:

London Creativity and Well-being Week has now become a crucial feature in the capital’s cultural calendar. There is a growing body of evidence indicating the profound effect engagement in the arts and creativity can have on health and well-being. The arts bring us alive, nourish our curiosity, help us learn – they change the places in which we are treated – and make them places we might want to be, they can improve the relationship between clinician and patient, and they give us the courage to face our own frailties and strengths. With debates and discussions, performances and exhibitions, tours and practical sessions, the Week is an opportunity to find out more, make connections, be inspired, and shape the future of arts, creativity and wellbeing.

This performance will take place in the following location

St Thomas’ Hospital - Central Hall
