Oliver Twist Tries Podcasts by Becky Brewis published on 2020-09-27T11:24:06Z The piece length is 7m 31s. SYNOPSIS (100 WORDS) Oliver Twist Tries Podcasts features recordings made in London in 2018, mainly on public transport. These are mixed with clips from the 1948 film Oliver Twist. The piece contrasts certain self help narratives with the daily reality of being part of society. It invites the listener to think about what is individual and what is shared. It’s also about the joy of being in a city surrounded by other people, in whose worlds you can become briefly immersed. The recordings were edited together during lockdown, when eavesdropping in crowded places seemed like a luxury belonging to a different age.
