Shallow Listening (SOLD OUT)
UPDATE: Shallow Listening has been POSTPONED to the 15-16th May. Due to the Victorian covid restrictions, we have been unable to hold rehearsals so have made the difficult decision to postpone the show so that we can give you the best performance we can. We really appreciate your support and we hope to see you on our new dates in May!
Artfully beguiling, subtly chaotic and deliciously zany, the music box project brings you the Sydney premiere of Shallow Listening. Five ‘sonic pillars’ of exploratory works by Moya Henderson, Jasmin Wing-Yin Leung, Jaslyn Robertson, Elizabeth Jigalin and Joseph Franklin are woven together with a performative sinew of sound, motion and play. From the clicking of scissors to slow motion singing, cheeky meditations on red, a plethora of toys and the catharsis of an internal dialogue — leave your expectations at the door and join the ensemble for an evening of signature music box madness.
Premiered at the 2019 Bendigo International Festival of Experimental Music (BIFEM), this genre-defying performance received the 2020 APRA AMCOS/AMC Art Music Award for Excellence in Experimental Music.
In the event of COVID restrictions changing, the music box project has planned to present an alternative music experience in place of Shallow Listening. By purchasing a ticket, you are supporting the music box project in making either performance possible. We are closely watching the ever changing situation to let you know of any changes to the performance as soon as possible.
the music box project is Jane Aubourg, Joseph Franklin, Elizabeth Jigalin, Naomi Johnson, Peter Leung, Joseph Lisk and Tina Stefanou.
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation on whose land these performances will take place, and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
Shallow Listening is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
