Event Details

Pianist Sonya Lifschitz takes to the piano at the heart of this electrifying work, conceived by Australian composer Robert Davidson with and for the Ukranian-born Lifschitz. Davidson's bracing and brilliant compositions here are performed with virtuosic talent but spiralling out from them is an audio-visual epic that charts a maelstrom of history, politics, art and rebellion.

Weaving together recorded audio, archival footage and live voice, a panoply of historical figures hover above the stage: Goebbels, Ai Wei Wei, Jackson Pollock, Michelle Obama, Susan Sontag, Stalin and Yudina herself. From Bertolt Brecht facing the House of Un-American Activities Commission to JFK, Whitlam, Gillard, Trump and Thunberg, more than a century of political and creative thought is put to scrutiny, arranged and rearranged in provocative and insightful layers. This powerful and affecting work is an accelerating ride through some of the biggest themes in contemporary history, and a chance to reimagine the world in which we find ourselves today.
