    Francesca Le Lohé is a composer & community musician active in Japan and the UK. Theatrical projects and intercultural exchange are integral to her work; in August 2020, she co-founded the “Sound and Word Network” with writer Charlotte Wührer to facilitate international collaborations between composers/sound artists and writers. Francesca is the composer/director behind “THE鍵KEY”: an immersive, site-specific opera inspired by Tanizaki’s novella, featuring a mixture of Japanese and Western artforms (awarded the 2019 “Keizo Saji Prize”). Her work has featured in festivals including TAma Music & Arts Festival, Sonorities, Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival and the London Festival of Architecture.
