SEGUE produces and presents an eclectic mix of music-led and cross-art form projects. The work we produce and share with our audiences and participators excites us and connects us with what it is to be human. We collaborate with our associate artists, companies, organisations and other partners to develop new work and new audiences and deliver a range of participatory projects. SEGUE is an associate company of the Lakeside Theatre at the University of Essex.

Alan Watts was a British philosopher, writer and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. He recorded a series of talks in 1972. One of these on Music and Life resonated strongly with us at SEGUE. In Music and Life Alan Watts uses music as a metaphor for life – it is a wonderful reminder to us to sing and dance as the music is being played, not to strive towards the one crashing chord at the end.
