‘One of the most exciting acts in Australia at the moment.’ Purple Sneakers

A spell-binding concert of sound and sight, Like Running Water sees Melbourne’s Ella Thompson assembling the ultimate super-group to deconstruct pop music.

Acclaimed for infectious vocals, dreamy synths and heaving rhythms, Like Running Water has Thompson teaming up with the electronic forces of Clio Renner and Sui Zhen along with strings and a woodwind quartet to create a multi-dimensional experience exploring themes of water.

Accompanied by lush visuals by Prue Stent and Honey Long, the work is a four-dimensional encounter with contemporary composition that builds on the powerful tradition of female collaboration in the Australian music scene.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Melbourne Festival
