Inner Cities - Gabriella Smart
A five hour piano cycle for solo piano composed by Alvin Curran and performed by Gabriella Smart.
A slow listening experience... Come and go as you wish.
Described by Alex Ross of the New Yorker as “vast and all-consuming”, Inner Cities celebrates the great cities Alvin Curran has inhabited over a 20-year period.
During the performance you’re free to wander, absorbing the different architectural and acoustic perspectives of the Museum’s space. People have been known to meditate, bring their yoga mat, or sit or lie down – you control your engagement with the artistic experience.
Expectation of the formal tradition of concert-going is suspended, with a five-hour celebration of space, light, meditation, and transcendence of time beyond our normal conception.
To be performed in a yet to be be revealed location within the walls of the new WA Museum Boola Bardip, you will be able to take time to listen and take in the buildings architecture.
Presented by Tura and WA Museum Boola Bardip
