Australia’s premier vocal ensemble The Song Company presents the Earth’s annual journey, through the seasons—summer, autumn, winter and spring. An evergreen selection of song and brand-new Indigenous dance to match the patterns and movement of the many Australian seasons, Four Colour Season is a synthesis of the two art forms.
The traditional four seasons of spring, summer, autumn, and winter have been depicted in European art and music for centuries, but the Aboriginal experience of the seasons is a much more varied and subtler story that tells of the patterns of animal and plant life and their direct impact on survival.
Journey with The Song Company, as they are joined by dancers from the Thomas E.S. Kelly Project to trace the course of the Earth’s annual journey in movement and song, both old and new.
