Blackbird Ensemble : the Night Sky at Q.

The Blackbird Ensemble returns in October 2014 with their most dynamic and ambitious show yet;
The Night Sky. With visuals by time-lapse king Joseph Michael, and Aerial acrobatics by The Dust Palace, The Night Sky will be an electric orchestral set like no other. The Night Sky presents space inspired music by artists including Portishead, Beastie Boys, David Bowie, John Williams, Gustav Holst, Nick Cave and Bjork.

More info:

The Blackbird Ensemble shows are born out of a desire to play music that is rarely performed, and to
change the traditional music performance context. The Blackbird Ensemble blends orchestral music
techniques with contemporary sounds, music and visuals to create an intriguing, provocative and
powerful experience.

As if that isn’t enough, the ensemble has collaborated with photographer and video artist Joseph
Michael who provides live video projections and starscapes during the show. The Dust Palace, a circus
and physical theatre company known for their edgy burlesque shows will collaborate with the ensemble
to perform alongside them from the heights of the Rangitira theatre.

The Night Sky will be showing at Q Theatre for three nights only, between Oct 2-4 - with double
shows on the 4th - 3pm and 8pm. The performance on Oct 3 will be followed by the first ever Black
Hole Disco. Tickets to the disco are free with a Night Sky Ticket, or $5 on the door.
