GAME ON: Ensemble Offspring, Julian Day + Georgina Oakes

Post image for GAME ON: Ensemble Offspring, Julian Day + Georgina Oakes

Featuring at Backstage in Sydney and MUMA in Melbourne, Game On brings together musical mavericks Julian Day and Ensemble Offspring to explore performance practises derived from game theory and sport. Opening the Ensemble Offspring show will be their Hatched Academy Associate Artist, clarinettist Georgina Oakes. 

Using everyday objects such as coins, planks of wood and bottles to create sound, they will establish modes of relating to each other through competitive physical challenges and cooperative strategies. Calling all spectators to play host to the musical winners and losers!

“It’s about cooperation, interaction, checks and balances, tension and release … both musical and social” John Zorn
