Event Details

In a major new collaboration, Camerata - Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra will join ARIA-nominated artist Rafael Karlen and The Australian Voices in the world premiere, Sinking Cities, streamed exclusively online.

This bold new 60-minute work for string orchestra, choir, and saxophone, is inspired by recent events in Hasankeyf, an ancient city in Turkey which has recently been flooded for a controversial dam, washing away 12,000 years of history. Sinking Cities explores erasing histories, as well as themes of loss, modernisation, short term gains, and the replacement of traditional lifestyles.

With lyrics by Queensland-based singer/songwriter, Pearly Black, the world premiere of Sinking Cities will be live streamed exclusively via the Australian Digital Concert Hall.

Sinking Cities is supported by Arts Queensland’s First Night Showcase - Judith Wright Arts Centre Fund, the PPCA and the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
