SONGS FROM THE HEART

A cappella voices inspired by the Uluru Statement from the Heart

The Song Company returns to Riverside Theatres with a new creative collaboration with Indigenous composers and singers Elizabeth Sheppard and Sonya Holowell.

Elizabeth and Sonya are working together with Artistic Director, Antony Pitts, and seven of The Song Company’s Principal and Ensemble Artists to create an a cappella presentation directly inspired by the Uluru Statement from the Heart.  As we journey through uncertain times, some things become more certain and necessary than ever.  For all of us who live in Australia, engaging directly with the experience of our First Nations hosts is the meaningful way forward into the future.

The Song Company has been fortunate to be able to work alongside Indigenous artists and musicians over many years, from William Barton to dance company Karul Projects in recent projects, Four-Colour-Season (2018) and Arms of Love (2021–22).  In Songs From The Heart the text and principles underlying the Uluru Statement are the direct focus and inspiration of Elizabeth and Sonya’s musical creativity.  Expect the unexpected from unaccompanied singers on stage, confronting the past and the present with newly-created music, and be moved by its intense beauty and raw emotion.
