Details

Part concert, part music theatre, part song cycle.

The Fission-Fusion Whale maps out a 21st-century fairy tale: three face-painted god-like interstellar explorers find one of their number swallowed within a galactic whale.

The work pivots on the vocal performances of Justine Anderson and Strange James, supported by the supernova-sonic terrains of renowned percussionist Peter Neville. An added audio-visual dimension informs the project through the Duckworth Hullick Duo’s implementation of Jonathan Duckworth’s Resonance Table — a touchscreen audiovisual instrument.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and JOLT
