About The Event

Between Lands and Longings

A bespoke chamber opera made for a Bristol living room

Chamber Made Opera (Melbourne, Australia) create operas of our time and place in living rooms, venues and festivals across the world. For IBT13, CMO join acclaimed UK live artists Zierle & Carter and sound designer Kathy Hinde, to create an intimate new performance.

Between Lands and Longings explores questions of identity and belonging. Inspired by a residency in Australia, the artists weave personal reflections into a poetic, visually rich piece.  Distant voices echo stories of displacement, migration, newfound connection and our search for a sense of home.

‘Perhaps the most beautifully judged site-specific work I’ve seen… mysteriously joyous and profoundly beautiful.’Theatre Notes
