Event Details

A child opens the gate and steps into a garden. Months ago, she planted seeds – ideas, hopes, memories – and left them to grow. Will she take the obvious path, stopping to marvel at each plant in turn? Or will she explore, become distracted and deviate to find something new? Will she follow the blackbird? In June 2016, flautist Naomi Johnson and Forest Collective invite you to ‘Blackbird in the Garden’. This whimsical concert piece brings together music and dance in a multidisciplinary performance based on Andrew Aronowicz’s flute miniature series Following the Blackbird. Here, Naomi becomes a child in a strange garden brimming with musical gems, as she follows the trail of an elusive and capricious dancing blackbird. Come join us at the garden gate and ready yourself for this most delightful and curious journey of playful discovery.

Featured non-Australian music: Enchanted Preludes (Elliot Carter), Deux poemes de Ronsard (Albert Roussel), Mirrors (Kaija Saariaho), In the Woods – III. Muir Wood (Toru Takamitsu)
