Event Details

In The Secret Noise, Ensemble Offspring will be joined by a cast of dancers and actors to explore the secrets of hidden sound, in a hybrid arts production inspired by music that is deliberately shielded from public life. Join this exploration over a series of fantastical scenes referencing forbidden ceremonies, legally extinguished music, covert music-making and private love-songs. You will move through the catacomb-like maze of Sydney’s Lower Town Hall uncovering secrets and hidden messages in this intimate performance, a cross between music, dance and installation.
Created by composer and co-Artistic Director of Ensemble Offspring, Damien Ricketson, The Secret Noise has something for everyone – from those who love intimate performance experiences of new sound worlds, to anyone fascinated by work crossing the boundaries of music, dance and performance. And for those who can’t resist uncovering mysteries, the work is like the ultimate music trivia, where you can delve into the experience and try to uncover more than 35 hidden messages and music references.
