London Sinfonietta - Philip Venables: The Gender Agenda

Part of Classical Season

Philip Venables’ latest work The Gender Agenda turns Queen Elizabeth Hall into a game show and the audience into contestants.

A politically charged fusion of live music, spoken word and multimedia, this concert piece dissolves traditional gender roles and flips the world on its head.

Venables’ opera adaptation of Sarah Kane’s 4:48 Psychosis won him an RPS Award and was nominated for an Olivier Award.

Recapturing the spirit of change that accompanied the London Sinfonietta’s first ever concert in 1968, this marks its return to its London home, Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Supported by Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne, in collaboration with London Sinfonietta, Ensemble Modern, Asko\Schönberg and Remix Ensemble Casa da Música
