City Recital Hall and Ensemble Offspring present the world premiere of Seven Stories, a multisensory work that combines music, storytelling and film.
When we boil down the world’s vast cauldron of myths, legends and literature, seven archetypal stories emerge; they are the bones of our human experience.
Seven Stories brings together an eclectic line-up of Australian female composers Amanda Brown, Kyls Burtland, Jodi Phillis, Jane Sheldon, Bree van Reyk, Sally Whitwell and Caitlin Yeo; Ensemble Offspring musicians on vocals and performing on an array of percussion, string, keyboard and wind instruments; acclaimed playwright and collaborative theatre maker Hilary Bell and video artist Sarah-Jane Woulahan.
This remarkable array of Australian talent writes and performs for the theatres and concert halls of the nation. They span pop, rock, classical, contemporary music, playwriting, screenwriting, film, video and multimedia.
Weaving together the seven archetypal stories, merging genres and art-forms they see the world from a female perspective, creating a powerful new Australian work that places women centre stage.
