Land-Sea-Sky-Home

Performace Type: Mainstage

Four scenes define the overall shape of Taikoz's latest full-scale program: Land, Sea, Sky & Separation. The first three parts comprise music that celebrates, takes inspiration from and expresses the essence of their titles: ‘land-ness’, ‘sea-ness’ and ‘sky-ness’. But what about those people who have been separated from their country, culture, family and friends, and who are deprived the ability and right to ‘celebrate’, ‘be inspired by’, ‘express the essence of’ or indeed simply experience the land, sea & sky?

In Land–Sea–Sky–Home, Taikoz explores the elements that make up Our World, home to all, but under the shadow of the plight of the desperate and unwanted who have been separated from their home, who have no home at all.

Featuring in the program are three new works: Ian Cleworth's large-scale, emotionally charged Home and virtuosic solo Waves, and by the legendary Sandy Evans, Sky, Let The Rain Fall, a colourful and dramatic work featuring Riley Lee’s largest and lowest shakuhachi, as well as the unique, microtonal percussion instrument called Sixxen. Contrasting with the meditative mantras of Riley Lee’s solo shakuhachi and explosive choreographic movement by Chongwei Zhang, Land–Sea–Sky–Home is part fête, part thought-provoking musical drama.
