Sophie Curtis most recently performed to critical acclaim with WA’s Cygnus Arioso ensemble and Paul Wright has performed with ensembles including ACO, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and WASO.

Gladys has performed in projects with the West Australian, Melbourne and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras, and at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music, Perth International Arts Festival, and Synaesthesia at the Music of Old and New Art (Hobart).

Concluding the program is the Trio in E-flat major for clarinet, cello and piano, composed by Louise Farrenc, a French musician who was a significant and influential teacher at the Paris conservatoire during its most glorious era. Her style is of Beethoven’s classicism melting into more lyrical, Romanticism of late Mendelssohn, Schumann and Brahms.

Released, the birds united soar as a collective symbol of endurance and hope. These sweeping narratives, of memories, desires and aspirations lead you into the theatre. A stunning score opens the performance, marking the next migration, echoing the movements of the dancers in a gradual and persistent climbing arc of cyclical patterns. Some of the art world’s most striking scenes are reimagined in humanity’s tumultuous bid to transcend. To rise, to fall, but to always try to rise again – together.
