This first-time double bill features the much anticipated world premiere of Alister Spence's Soak.

The Australian premiere of The Hollow Air, curated by Phillip Slater, will feature guest artist, shakuhachi virtuoso Riley Lee and incorporate sound projection and real time digital manipulation by Greg White. This premiere celebrates Arvo Pärt's 75th birthday in a not to be missed event.
