Resonant Bodies Festival

Australian exclusive

Illuminating the shape-shifting power of the human voice, Resonant Bodies is an international festival of new vocal music founded in New York in 2013 and described as “indispensable” and “essential” by the New York Times.

In this exclusive Australian iteration, six extraordinary singers will showcase their work over two days throughout Carriageworks. Resonant Bodies‘ singers extend to an international constellation of performers whose innovative practices represent the vanguard of the vocal arts.

For Sydney 2018, Swedish-Ethiopian composer-improviser Sofia Jernberg, Indonesian experimental vocalist Rully Shabara and luminous New York soprano Ariadne Greif join SCO favourite Mitchell Riley, new music royalty Deborah Kayser and local rising star Sonya Holowell for a unique demonstration of the breadth and range of the contemporary voice.
