Alex Etchart is an Anglo-Uruguayan community artist and multi-instrumentalist composer working in the UK and beyond.
Raised in the South American folk tradition, Alex brings those sounds of fire and hope to contemporary social movements amplifying the voice of marginalised groups and social justice campaigns.
Alongside Siobhán Knox, Alex produces the award-winning, repeat-sellout show Sex Worker's Opera which has just completed a UK tour with support from Arts Council England and PRS Foundation. The show tours to Amsterdam in July 2018 with support from Open Society Foundations to coincide with the International AIDS Conference and Amsterdam LGBTIAQ+ Pride.
Alex produces wartime radio and international street theatre with members of Teatro di Nascosto living across the Middle East. Alex co-leads Sam Lee's Fire Choir at Foundling Museum alongside Blythe Pepino and Ben See.
