Techno Play

July 29 @ 8:00 pm 9:30 pm

Techno Play features our inimitable core members Benjamin Kopp (piano) and Claire Edwardes (percussion/Artistic Director) presenting music full of colour, play, virtuosity and shared gesture. With world premieres from Nicole Lizée (Canada) and Christopher Fox (UK), new Australian classics from Cyrus Meurant and Kate Moore, and strikingly original solo and duo interpretations of scores from living legends Caroline Shaw (USA), Thomas Ades (UK) and Karen Tanaka (USA/Japan). Fusing minimal musings with percussive edginess, this is a diverse and electric program presented by two artists at the top of their game!

Techno Play is supported by the Australian Government through the Office for the Arts in association with City of Sydney.
