Threading the Light

When

Friday 25 November from 7:30pm to 9pm Saturday 26 November from 7:30pm to 9pm

Designed for live performance with real time interaction between performed and pre-recorded elements, Felicity Wilcox’s “Threading the Light” is a multi media gem-like opera for string orchestra, singers and percussion, electronic surround sound and images.

The title refers to the universal phenomenon of ritual, a constant in human culture designed to transcend worldly concerns.

The work features surround diffusion effects and delay and spectral processing that invite us to be drawn into this sculptural work structured in four movements named after elements commonly associated with ritual practices: I Light, II Water, III Blood, and IV Fire.

Text for the work has been sourced from prayers and contemplative writings across a broad range of faiths.

We are so proud to announce that this production by The Cooperative will be the world premiere performance of this extraordinary work.
