Humanity has always sought to extend the boundaries of knowledge through innovation and discovery. Yet, just over 100 years ago there was no space travel, bionic ear, cinema, telephone network… or atomic bomb. The innovation of the 20th century created opportunities and choices like never before. And it changed us.
This is the premiere of Australian composer Sally Greenaway’s new work, the product of the inaugural Merlyn Myer Composing Women’s Commission, initiated by the Merlyn Myer Fund and co-developed by the Fund and Melbourne Recital Centre. Melbourne-based contemporary music champions Syzygy Ensemble and actress Anni Ha take you on a provoking and entertaining journey through seven innovations that continue to shape humanity, the way we behave and the way we think.
