Copson's performance, called A Woodland Truce, opens the London institution's Magazine Sessions, which will feature "experimental and immersive" events from various artists throughout the year. Felicita's music soundtrack, along with vocals by progressive amateur choir Musarc of the city's Cass School of Arts, will accompany a "play without actors" about a handful of woodland animals, a voicing from Marcus Nasty and "a fox named Reynard" who meet up in a clearing and end up conspiring to "undermine their biological conditioning and nature itself".

Given Felicita's penchant for the sweet and synthetic, hidden beneath a bubbly guise of childish innocence that's then ruthlessly delivered in chaotic bursts, the play should be both suitably fun and disturbing.
The Magazine takes place at Serpentine Sackler Gallery on February 15th (info).
