Songs Of Emzara

‘Songs of Emzara’ is a tribute to 16 species who at this moment struggle for their survival – the Indri Indri, the Black Crested Gibbon, Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo, Blakiston’s Fish Owl, the Booroolong Frog, the Blue throated Macaw ….to name a few. They are the characters that will take Centrestage, it is their voices that you will hear, voices that will touch your heart. ‘Songs of Emzara’ is performed by Lizzie O’Keefe and Linsey Pollak. They combine the human voice with the sounds of endangered animals. Linsey uses breath, lip pressure and fingering to play animal calls while Lizzie weaves her voice in and out of this musical landscape. The animal protagonists are present through their voices as well as in the still and moving images projected onto the performers.
