Experience a choral odyssey...
explore the wonder, the science, and the human perception of outer space
Supertonic is pleased to be returning to Hannah Playhouse to present its second concert of 2018.
With Space, Supertonic will explore the wonder, the science, and the human perception of outer space, including ethereal music about the stars, the Voyager 1 space probe, and a Māori legend about the creation of the Milky Way. The centrepiece for this concert will be the collaboration with Wellington-based atmospheric rock band Elim, where together the choir and band will create a ‘concept album’ based on the chapters of the late Stephen Hawking’s book A Brief History of Time: a sonic representation of the universe’s creation and the fabric of reality. As well as the incredible music, Space will feature a strong multimedia visual element to transport the audience even further into the depths of the unknown.
