Presented by the earin festival

Bursting with musical riches, Stolen explores ideas of displacement, dislocation and identity through the integration of music and visual image. The performances bring together two of Australia’s most innovative new music ensembles for the first time; Halcyon, Sydney’s acclaimed vocal chamber music specialists and Soundstream Collective, the University of Adelaide’s new music Ensemble in Residence. Stolen features works by Australian composers Gerard Brophy, Andrew Ford, David Harris and David Kotlowy and readings by Professor Lester-Irabinna Rigney from the Bringing Them Home Report alongside art by one of the country’s most intriguing visual artists Ngarrindjeri-Kaurna-Yunkanytjatjara-man, Allan Sumner.
