Ensemble Offspring’s Another Future

June 4, 2022 @ 3:30 pm

Ensemble Offspring presents Another Future in which each work explores themes pertinent to our lives today. From climate change and natural disasters to global pandemics and human connection, four new works by bold female compositional voices offer moving sonic insights into life on planet earth in 2022!

In this live and live-streamed concert, half of the program sees two consecutive years of Ensemble Offspring’s annual Noisy Women Commission finally come to fruition, performing new works by Eve Klein (2020 Noisy Women composer) and Nirmali Fenn (2021 Noisy Women composer). If you came to Backstage Music’s Now You Hear Her festival last year, you may have heard Eve Klein’s Hadrian mid-development in an open workshop. And Nirmali arrives in Sydney from her New York home to finally do some face to face workshops in Tempe!

Anybody Out There is a new sextet written for EO by Dutch/American composer Vanessa Lann. And finally, Bree van Reyk’s one-of-a-kind Replica Garden and handmade micro-theatre receives its first Sydney outing.

Ensemble Offspring offers a poignant and immersive afternoon, during which this musical time capsule will tug on your heart strings and open your ears to an innovative sonic future!

Make a day of it – after the show, head into the vast turbine hall to experience Galleries After Dark, a free launch of Ken Done’s new exhibition plus Legs on the Wall, drinks and tapas at the cafe and more!

Tickets: $30 / $25 concession / $10 livestream
