Topology presents Share House


A “live-action silent film”, Share House follows 5 dysfunctional bandmates sharing a dishevelled flat and interwoven life; full of warmth, fun and unrequited love.

The housemates make their squalor bearable through making music, but they can’t ignore it forever. Disaster strikes, forcing each of them to face hard realities.

Portraying fictional characters while playing intricate original music, Topology explores an unprecedented mode of performance fusing physical theatre and music – a wordless narrative conveyed through virtuosic instrumentation.

A first of its kind, Share House opens eyes, ears and minds to a broadened landscape of artistic possibility in music and theatre.

The Song Company presents Vocal Fireworks


Marking the final stage of a four year cycle based on the elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire, The Song Company celebrates the heat and passion of Fire and the music which expresses it. In this first-time collaboration with The Song Company, Danish Guest Director and composer Bo Holten leads a fiery program of neck-breaking speeds, hair-raising leaps and awe-inspiring harmonies.

Bo Holten is one of Denmark’s most admired musicians. His Operation Orfeo is his country’s most performed opera. Holten’s impressive oeuvre includes concertos and vocal works, and music for Lars von Trier’s film The Element of Crime.

Program includes:

  • Carlo Gesualdo, three madrigals
  • Luca Marenzio, three madrigals
  • Luciano Berio, Sequenza for voice
  • Bo Holten, Rota Veneris
