Half the sky

The sound of the sexual revolution

Wednesday 3 May 2017

Mao Zedong famously proclaimed ‘women hold up half the sky’. The award-winning ‘Ensemble Offspring’ crashes through the glass ceiling with an all-female composer event, featuring music by CIMF 2017 Composer-in- Residence Chen Yi, Kaija Saariaho, Mary Finsterer and others. Performances will be interspersed throughout the Gallery; there will also be a small forum on music and gender.

This event is part of the Canberra International Music Festival.
