A musical map of our landscape

-barra

January 16, 2022 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Experience a sonic and visual journey through Yuwaalaraay country in north-western New South Wales. The world premiere of -barra, a collaboration between Ensemble Offspring and acclaimed Yuwaalaraay storyteller Nardi Simpson, will wrap you in the landscape that inspired it, through an evocative original music composition and striking visuals.

Yuwaalaraay artists Nardi Simpson, Lucy Simpson and Brendan Odee Welsh join forces with Sydney’s musical mavericks Ensemble Offspring, jazz pianist Kevin Hunt and Barayagal choir for an unforgettable narrative journey into the Australian interior. Let the river sing and the red dirt rumble: from Nhungga-barra dirt country to the flat plains of Mirriaa-barra, from the swamplands of Murrgu-barra to the riverlands of Garrii-barra, the artists have come together to create a sonic mapping of the land through the four distinct regions they call home. 


Note: all patrons above the age of 16 must present their COVID-19 vaccination certificate upon entry. Patrons aged 12 and above must wear face masks inside the venue.

Ensemble Offspring is committed to ensuring our events are accessible to everyone. Please email admin@ensembleoffspring.com at the time of booking to inform us of any special access needs.
