Ensemble Offspring’s Now You Hear Her program utilises the spaces within World Square to build a social and creative hub.
During the day project developments, rehearsals and workshops with a lunch time ‘showing’ of work will be hosted. In the evening, key artists will curate and host longer form programs of diverse music-making including live performances, talks, film screenings and recorded music. These free-flowing events will be relaxed and sociable and a chance to listen and learn from some of the most inspiring woman artists in the country including Eve Klein, Freya Schack Arnott, Claire Edwardes, Chloe Kim and many more in the month long series!
Ensemble Offspring’s 2020 Noisy Women Composer Eve Klein has created an in depth project Another Future inspired by climate change based on the book by Elaine Kelly Dwelling in the Age of Climate Change where Elaine argues for an orientation of care as the foundation for an ethical response to the climate change crisis. As part of the project Eve has gathered objects from communities effected by bushfire which will be used as musical instruments in the work. This performance is at 5.30pm.
Following this at 7.30 pm is Offspring Bites 3: En Masse CD Launch. Offspring Bites celebrates the most stunning chamber works commissioned by Ensemble Offspring through our Noisy Egg Creation Fund, recording them for release and pairing them with bespoke visual content. Offspring Bites 3: En Masse features a trio of modern chamber masterpieces by Australian composers Alex Pozniak, Holly Harrison and Thomas Meadowcroft with new video art by Melbourne artist Cobie Orgers and Sydney based Juan Withington and Andrew Morgan.
