Tempo Rubato, Melbourne | Friday, 10 November 2023, 8:00-9:30pm TICKETS
The Bowerbird Collective joins their dear friend and Associate Artist Katie Yap for the second concert of her Multitudes residency at Tempo Rubato. Katie has created four new works through collaborative composition exploring themes of cultural identity, environmental storytelling and activism, and the physical joy of music-making.
Each work is based on one of Judith Wright’s bird poems, which her mother introduced to her, along with a love of birds themselves.
“Spectacular... There isn’t enough space to provide adequate praise” - Limelight Magazine
“It moved me to tears... I left feeling I had been sung to by the country” - Audience member
“...a work of art... a transfixing soundscape” - Sounds Like Sydney
