From Melbourne to Milian, ELISION ensemble: 30 years of performance practice in the sonic arts is a rare presentation of 30 years of sonic practice covering installations, new media work, concert activity, Australian opera and music-theatre, and a history of challenging and virtuosic performance.
ELISION’s musical journey has ranged from the first-ever appearances of Australian opera at the Paris Opera House 'La Bastille' to the Fomenko Theatre in Moscow, concert engagements at the Vienna Concert House and the Berlin Philharmonie, to residencies at Harvard, Stanford and Huddersfield Universities, and a performance series for Kings Place, London.
Through films, recordings, press, posters, sketches and drawings, this exhibition celebrates thirty years of contemporary practice and ELISION's involvement with artists such as theatre directors Barrie Kosky, Michael Kantor, writers Allison Croggon, Beth Yahp, visual and new media artists Justine Cooper, Heri Dono, Judy Watson, Per Inge Bjørlo, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, Ensembles Modern and CIKADA, and composers Liza Lim, Brian Ferneyhough, Richard Barrett, Aldo Clementi, Franco Donatoni, John Rodgers, Aaron Cassidy, Dmitri Kourliandski, Turgut Ercetin, Timothy McCormack, Matthew Sergeant, and Luke Paulding amongst others.
This project is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
