Event Details

Poised in the delicate space between concert and theatre, Chamber Made’s Permission to Speak explores the most universal of relationships – that of parent and child – as it exists and evolves through a lifetime.

This first-time collaboration between director Tamara Saulwick and composer Kate Neal pairs contemporary performance with musical composition to construct a revealing portrait of the experience of family.

Musings, diatribes, recollections and hindsight find voice as four performer/vocalists are fused in choral counterpoint with an assembly of pre-recorded voices. Built from interviews with people of all ages, Permission to Speak interweaves the complexities, parallels and paradoxes of this dynamic relationship.

Further information for this event is available online at the event's website or by email to boxoffice@brisbanepowerhouse.org
