Friday 20th October 8pm: Like Running Water at The Melbourne Festival
Melbourne Recital Centre Southbank
Melbourne based musician Ella Thompson (GL, Dorsal Fins) has teamed up with fellow Victorian based artists, Clio Renner, Sui Zhen, Prue Stent and Sydney-based Honey Long, to create the ultimate super-group on Thompson’s newest performance piece, Like Running Water. Known for her infectious pop vocals, dreamy, synth-heavy melancholia and heaving rhythms, Like Running Water will intertwine Ella Thompson’s distinctive sound with the classically oriented modes of contemporary composition. Featuring a string and woodwind quartet and the electronically charged forces of Sui Zhen and emotive pianist Clio Renner, Like Running Water explores the deconstruction of pop music in a multi-sensory performance.
