A story about life, death, and parking cars
Presented by the Melbourne Fringe Festival
Speaking in Tones is the latest cross-platform project from filmmaker and musician Agatha Yim. From whale songs to a London parking lot, this mishmash of contemporary music, theatre, and film, explores the possibilities of communication beyond words, and the processes of the creative mind.
Featuring the haunting theatrics of George Crumb’s ‘Vox Balaenae’ (Voice of the Whale), the world premiere of Michael Slayton’s ‘Mirórs’ inspired by the paintings of Miró, and an Australian premiere of Yim’s own experimental cross-platform radio play, ‘Speaking in Tones’.
This project brings together some of Australia’s finest talent such as actress Stephanie Valenzuela; musicians Michael Dahlenburg (cellist, Melbourne Chamber Orchestra), Leigh Harrold (pianist, Syzygy Ensemble), Francesca Hiew (violinist, Australian String Quartet), and Kenny Keppel (clarinetist, ANAM).
