Ensemble Offspring: Spel tour to WA

Presented by our sister organisation in the west, TURA New Music, Ensemble Offspring brings a program of all-female works to Perth for performances at the Subiaco Arts Centre, and for the first time at Albany Entertainment Centre.

The ensemble will also work with four especially chosen composers from local universities, WAAPA and UWA, on their new works for the group, and will present these pieces in performance at the Subiaco Arts Centre.

Ensemble Offspring presents a hard-hitting program exploring nostalgia and adventure, love and life. Featuring a world premiere, Blackbird Song, by long-time collaborator, Dutch based Australian sensation Kate Moore, a first-time performance of new Composer in Residence for the Chicago Symphony, Missy Mazolli’s, piano solo Orizzonte, a remount of Love in Solitude by Merlyn Myer Commission recipient Andrea Keller, and Felicity Wilcox’s composers cut of Jean Luc Goddard’s 1962 film Vivre sa Vie.
