Event Details

Inspired by the 2016 Metropolis theme of ‘Cities’, we have curated a 3-concert series with the title ‘Invisible Chambers’.

This set of concerts explores the borders, containers and spaces that we occupy as humans on this fractured planet of ours. Some of these boundaries are imposed by others, some we impose on ourselves, others exist only in our minds but influence our behaviour nonetheless.

Our series progresses from tiny, suffocating spaces-for-one through to wide open spaces of inclusive utopia. Acknowledging that we have to look beyond our self-imposed containers at some point, we conclude our year with a round-the-world ticket.

4 composers from 4 different continents in 4 large-scale works, examining everything from Eastern European war horrors to South American folklore to USA religious transcendence. We finish back at home (and with a reminder of the distances we’ve traversed) with Roger Smalley’s modern masterpiece, ‘Poles Apart’.
