Encounters (April 2008)

This collaboration between MYT and the poet Chris Kinsey, the singing group Vox Orbis (led by Iris Gordijn, our long-time music director), and staged at Oriel Davies Gallery in Newtown was an interesting experimental performance piece. Combining poetry, wordless song, movement and scraps of allusive, repeated dialogue, two performances were played within the setting of large-scale paintings by William Roberts, inspired by Aboriginal culture.

Audiences were very positive about the achievement, with some encouraging friends to attend the final performance at Theatr Clera.
