Woven Song is the latest international project by Short Black Opera, featuring new compositions by Deborah Cheetham AO.
A contemporary chamber series inspired by the Australian Tapestry Workshop Embassy Tapestries, the project celebrates works of art from an ancient culture, reinterpreted and recreated by the exceptional weavers at the Australian Tapestry Workshop, inspiring a contemporary response in current classical music practice. It is an innovative project that breathes new life into each work, honouring the artistic excellence of the artists involved in creating these three-dimensional works of cultural expression.
Through this important project, Cheetham gives voice to the material works, engaging in the telling of First Nations stories. Woven Song is a unique collaboration across cultures and art forms, building international creative communities. Cheetham performs with musicians local to each country – Singapore, Japan, France, Ireland and China – breathing new life into each work.
