Tura New Music
Spel by Ensemble Offspring
Champions of adventurous new music, Ensemble Offspring, return to WA for concerts in Perth and Albany with a hard-hitting program of all-female works.
Tura presents a night of adventurous new music with Sydney's Ensemble Offspring at The Sewing Room. Performing a hard-hitting program of all-female works, the concert explores nostalgia, adventure, love and life. Featuring a world premiere by Netherlands-based Australian sensation Kate Moore and a first-time performance of a piano solo by Composer-in-Residence for the Chicago Symphony, Missy Mazolli. Andrea Keller's gorgeous Love in Solitude and Moore's flowing solo vibraphone work Spel are contrasted by Felicity Wilcox's Composer's Cut which will be performed to the composer's own edit of Jean-Luc Godard's 1962 French New Wave classic film Vivre Sa Vie. The film juxtaposes whimsy and hard-edged themes, presenting the conflicted reality of 60s France, where the new hope offered by a burgeoning feminist movement, was not always what it seemed.

Think of the great Jazz decades – the 30s, 40s & 50s. Consider some of the classic songs from the Motown era known as the “Swinging 60s”. Supplement this with the occasional torch song, a few blues and soul numbers, and spice it up with some catchy contemporary dance tunes. more »Get Tickets
