Croissants and Whiskey: Dillon & Younan
Thu 14 December @ 18:00 - 19:00$20 – $25
Featuring the world premiere of a major new work by Kym Dillon, Spirits is a playful and irreverent work about these entities, inviting listeners into a sequence of games and plays about how we relate to our past and the spirits bequeathed to us: what we embrace, how we evolve, what we choose to leave behind, and what stays with us. Exploring the idea of spirits with two additional works, Elizabeth Younan’s The Fertile Crescent propels audiences into a high-octane, evocative journey through three vibrant dances that link the Middle East to the West. Witness Croissants & Whiskey highlight their own distinct voice with a new co-composed work, inspired by storytelling techniques drawn from the Chinese traditional music of Lee and Yap’s own heritage. Immerse yourself in the unconventional blend of harpsichord, G violone, baroque viola, and recorders as they come together in a resplendent and incisive performance not to be missed.
Spirits was commissioned by the 2022 Continuo Commissioning Circle.
