Concert | Polyphonic Voices – Songs for the Earth
Saturday, June 25 at 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Hear the intricate harmonies of Polyphonic Voices mingling with the spectacle of Luke Jerram’s majestic Gaia, a detailed sculpture of the earth that currently hangs in space inside St Paul’s Cathedral, Melbourne.
The artwork aims to create a sense of the ‘overview effect’, which is a shift in awareness experienced by some astronauts who, when seeing the earth from space, get a feeling of awe for the planet and an understanding of the interconnectedness of all life, along with a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.
The majority-Australian program Songs for the Earth has been specially selected to respond to these themes, and features works by Paul Stanhope, Joe Twist, Alice Chance, Stephen Leek and Dan Walker, as well as texts by Indigenous writers Oodgeroo Noonuccal and Reverend Lenore Parker that foreground Indigenous Australians’ relationship with Country.
Tickets: $30 \ $20 (Student)
