Little Operations with Fabricated Rooms

Return to Events

“Just like Sputnik, global warming has stigmatised the sky: what used to be a moving star became a delivery system; what used to be the weather is now a vengeful climate.”

From ‘Earth Sound Earth Signal’ by Douglas Kahn.

Our next Little Operations event is putting the spotlight on Fabricated Rooms and their latest work-in-progress, ‘The Sky Is Well Designed’. An experimental chamber opera, ‘The Sky Is Well Designed’ examines the ways in which our relationship to transience and nature is shifting amidst the dual forces of digital existence and climate change.

A collaboration between writer-director Patrick McCarthy and composer Robert Jordan, this public showing will feature a reading of the performance text by performers Sophie Ross and Josh Price, accompanied by a live electronic score. 

This Chamber Made Opera Little Operations event is presented in association with RMIT’s SIAL Studios.
