“Hope’s exquisite voice accompanied by her own piano-playing soars above us as she sings of all the joys and pitfalls of love, the longing and surprises woven into relationships, while the dancers interpret the lyrics in fluid, organic short stories of seamless choreography…”
Shannon Hope was named amongst the Mail & Guardian 200 Young Africans 2014 for Arts & Culture, in recognition of her passion and commitment to not only “living the dream”, but living who you truly are…
With sad, dark, from-the-core stuff to light-hearted and almost joking tunes, her music takes one on an emotional roller-coaster ride that will leave your brain in a knot at the most and a little touched at the least…
“Hope bangs out her music on piano like a possessed forest banshee, and when she lets go that deceptively dense voice, it should raise the hair on your forearms.”
