Emerging Tasmanian composers work with TSO and DRILL

The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra partnership with Hobart youth dance company DRILL has enabled three emerging Tasmanian composers to work one-on-one with a choreographer to develop the context that informed their musical scores. These works have been recorded by the TSO o be experienced through wireless headphones during DRILL performances in August.

This work titled NEON is a site-specific, triple-bill choreographed by Joshua Lowe, Angela Barnard and returning DRILL alumna, Jaala Jensen, and the three composers are Claire Farrell, Rhys Gray, Jonathan Dieckfoss.

NEON will be an immersive, free-roaming performance that encourages the audience to pick their own adventure.

Working in collaboration with thirty local young dancers, the choreographers have created works in response to three elements; Carbon, Krypton and Lithium. NEON examines how the elements, representing all basic matter in the Universe, interact, bond and change, and explores how these relationships give them meaning and purpose.
