World Premiere | Streamed exclusively online
In a major new collaboration, Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra will join ARIA-nominated artist Rafael Karlen and The Australian Voices in this world premiere streamed exclusively online via the Australian Digital Concert Hall.
This bold new 60-minute work for string orchestra, choir, and saxophone, is inspired by events in Hasankeyf, an ancient city in Turkey which in recent years was flooded for a controversial dam, washing away 12,000 years of history. Sinking Cities explores erasing histories, as well as themes of loss, modernisation, short term gains, and the replacement of traditional lifestyles.
This exciting new work will premiere on Friday, 11 February 2022, streamed live from the Judith Wright Arts Centre.
Sinking Cities is supported by Arts Queensland’s First Night Showcase – Judith Wright Arts Centre Fund, the PPCA and the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
All tickets $24 including booking fee and available to watch for up tp 72 hours post-performance.
