Woven

Returning to Elisabeth Murdoch Hall for the second time in 2022, Cheetham presents Woven Song, a contemporary chamber series inspired by the Australian Tapestry Workshop Embassy Tapestries.

The Embassy Tapestries are a vibrant collaboration between Indigenous artists and the master weavers at the Australian Tapestry Workshop that places large-scale hand-woven tapestries on loan to selected overseas Australian Diplomatic Missions.

Through this important project, Cheetham gives voice to the material works, engaging in the telling of First Nations stories. Woven Song is a unique collaboration across cultures and art forms, building international creative communities. Cheetham performs with musicians local to each country – Singapore, Japan, France, Ireland, China and India – breathing new life into each work.

Woven Song celebrates works of art from an ancient culture, reinterpreted and recreated by the exceptional weavers at the Australian Tapestry Workshop, inspiring a contemporary response in current classical music practice.

ARTISTS

Deborah Cheetham soprano
Mindy Meng Wang guzheng
Reison Kuroda shakuhachi
Musicians from Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, Ensemble Dutala, PLEXUS, and Rubiks Collective
