Sometimes Home Can Grow Stranger Than Space
Sometimes Home Can Grow Stranger than Space is created in collaboration with Monash University Faculty of Arts, which commissioned the 100 Stories archive that then inspired the works created for the concert program. These are intimate accounts of lives remembered in fine grain detail away from the thrust of battle. The work will have three public expressions, with its world premiere on November 2nd 2018 as part of Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues, as a series of solo performances at MPavilion produced in collaboration with Monash University Museum of Art on November 11th, and thirdly as a concert in Europe (To be announced).
Sometimes Home Can Grow Stranger than Space is supported by the Anzac Centenary Public Fund, the Australia Council for the Arts and Creative Victoria, and was conceived from an original concept by Paul Grabowsky AO, founding director of the Australian Art Orchestra.
