Sydney Opening Concert

Rully Shabara has harnessed his many and spectacular voices to create a new piece with his recently formed project Setabuhan – a pattern-driven, muscular music for voice, drummers (Ramberto Agozalie and Daniel Caesar), and dancers (Raghav Handa and Melinda Tyquin).

Sofia Jernberg presents a solo work she has composed, after which she's joined by Jim Denley (saxophone) in a new composition by Johan Jutterström (Sweden) that takes these adventurous musicians to their limits.

Sydney Closing Concert

Ariadne Greif's Sydney set plays through scenes on the complex experiences of children. This theatrical program features new and recent work by Shawn Jaeger, Ricardo Romaneiro and Ryan Chase (Jabberwocky) – for which she will be joined by wunderkind New York-based Australian organist Alessandro Pittorino

Mitchell Riley gives the world premiere of a new one-man stage work by Jack Symonds and Pierce Wilcox. Taking Patrick White’s Voss as its basis, this song cycle for voice, piano (Zubin Kanga) and electronics (Ben Carey) pushes Mitchell’s voice and body into new and extreme territory with a quizzically modern interpretation of an Australian icon.
