Event Details

Hypnopompia (or the edge of the unknown) explores the edge of adulthood and finding a new sense of reality – what it is to be a teenager and grow up in an uncertain world. Looking around at a world filled with war, climate change, celebrity influencers, and the pressures of social media, Hypnopompia (or the edge of the unknown) explores the place of young people in the strange nightmare that is our century, and questions what is real and what is not. It’s a sonic journey – a gamut of musical styles, pushing and pulling against each other, filled with magnetism and electricity. Ground-breaking works of the children’s choir repertoire will go hand in hand with new arrangements of electro-acoustic hits by Sufjan Stevens, Fever Ray, ANONHI and Billie Eilish. In a first for the Sydney Children’s Choir, Artistic Director Lyn Williams is joined by stage director Alexander Berlage (American Psycho, Cry-Baby), two-time winner of the Sydney Theatre Award for Best Direction of a Musical.
