Why Theatre?

Part of New Music Biennial

What 'sings' about a story? What can theatre add to music, and vice versa? Composer Conor Mitchell leads a discussion on the art of theatre.

The theatre specialist examines what new developments in theatre craft, including light, sound and text, can enhance musical performance without the traditional constraints of the stage.
