Voices of the Amazon is set in the Amazon Rainforest and, through dance, music and sounds recorded from the Amazon Rainforest, tells the story of two sisters and their overwhelming love for each other. The story also highlights the damaging effects of deforestation and the loss of renewable medicines and plants, and aims to engage audiences with these global environmental issues facing our world. The show is narrated by Emmy, Golden Globe and Tony Award-winning Jeremy Irons and has an international cast including 6 performers from Brazil, the USA and Greece. The production is supported by WWF and the Eden Project along with science consultant Alexander Van Tulleken (CBBC’s Operation Ouch, Channel 4’s How to Lose Weight Well) – press release attached.
