An exploration of faith in the 21st century, Dots+Loops explores the concepts of religion and belief from multiple perspectives.
Brisbane-born, NY-based violin soloist Courtenay Cleary presents the Australian premiere of David Lang's "Mystery Sonatas", complimented by uniquely organic live visuals from Team Animal Spirits. Virtuosic, transcendental explorations of faith and emotion, Lang’s perspective is that of an agnostic examining the mystery of religion and belief itself.
British-Australian mezzo soprano Lotte Betts-Dean will open the concert with a special set of solo vocal music from pioneering medieval composer and mystic Hildegard von Bingen, and curated by Betts-Dean herself.
The live performances then flow into an ambient audiovisual "remix" of the concert by Tilman Robinson, providing a backdrop for performers, composers and audience members chat and mingle.
