On the afternoon of Sunday 9th June, a flashmob of over 30 singers gathered in the foyer of the Queen Elizabeth Hall as audience members arrived for the Shell-sponsored performance by Spira Mirabilis of Richard Strausss Metamorphosen. The singers launched into a version of Leonard Cohens classic song, Hallelujah, with rewritten lyrics drawing attention to Shells controversial human rights and environmental record. They unfurled a banner with Yoko Onos quotation Art is a means for survival and handed out flyers to audience members. They gave a number of repeat performances around the Southbank which drew applause and support.
