The Song Company presents Arms of Love

The Song Company will tour Australia beginning 25 August with their newest production Arms of Love. The show is co-curated/directed by Robert Macfarlane, with choreography by Thomas E.S. Kelly, performed by dancer and Wiradjuri man Neville WiIliams-Boney against the background of an ongoing refugee crisis at home and abroad.

The Song Company is proud to be reuniting with Thomas E.S. Kelly – from contemporary Indigenous dance company Karul Projects – in a pageant of light and movement to Membra Jesu Nostri by Dieterich Buxtehude and I pray the sea by Australian composer Chris Williams, commissioned with funding from the Silo Collective and setting words from No Friend But the Mountains by Behrouz Boochani.

Williams’s flotilla of seven short fragments and one extended final movement is interspersed with Buxtehude’s intimate 17th-century cycle of seven cantatas on the physical and spiritual aspects of the Crucifixion.

The Song Company’s Artists, Amy Moore, Chloe Lankshear, Stephanie Dillon, Thomas Flint, and Robert Macfarlane are joined by a continuo made up of a Tarogato (a wooden saxophone), played by Hylton Mowday, |Jenny Eriksson on electric viola da gamba, and Artistic Director Antony Pitts on a classic Rhodes keyboard.

The Song Company is Australia’s leading professional vocal ensemble. Unique in its stylistic diversity with repertoire spanning the 9th century to today, the Company brings together the country’s finest voices in innovative performances, artistic development, educational outreach, and collaborative music-making across art forms. Its long-standing and extensive commissioning program is also central to its ethos. With a palette of outstanding Principal, Guest, Associate, and Ensemble Artists, The Song Company is reshaping the professional vocal landscape in Australia for today and the next generation.
