Experience a unique collaboration across cultures and art forms as Yorta Yorta composer Deborah Cheetham AO presents contemporary chamber music inspired by nine tapestries from the Embassy Tapestry Collection.

These tapestries have been designed by Indigenous artists and woven at the Australian Tapestry Workshop. Now, among the ATW looms, the acclaimed soprano will perform the first three compositions in her 'Woven Song' suite giving voice to the material works.

Performing with Cheetham's Short Black Opera will be special guests tabla master Pandit Ashis Sengupta (India), shakuhachi master, Reison Kuroda (Japan), mezzo soprano Angela Cortez (Singapore), Plexus (Australia) and Rubiks Collective (Australia).

These musical compositions speak to the tapestries Brook Andrew's Catching Breath, Nanyuma Napangati's Untitled (detail from Kiwirrkurra women's painting) and Lumpu Lumpu Country by Daisy Andrews.
