Event Details

Claire Cowan’s Blackbird Ensemble are thrill-seekers, liberty takers and musical magpies inviting you into their treasure-filled nest. Aiming to move you and groove you against a backdrop of a futuristic dystopia, they explore ideas about the future, technology and its impact on our lives and planet, and our interconnectedness and interdependence as human beings in society.

This ground-breaking young New Zealand ensemble walks the line between genres with traditional instruments and weird and wonderful new ones. In this concert Blackbird Ensemble explores new territories through a retro-futurist lens, creating ritualistic performances of music spanning multiple centuries that will leave you feeling like you’ve time-travelled into a strange new reality.
