What to expect?
Expect an immersive, poetic response to motherhood led by award-winning vocalist, improviser and composer Sunny Kim. Accompanied by internationally renowned female collaborators, Helen Svoboda (double bass), Aviva Endean (clarinets), Mindy Meng Wang (guzheng) and Gelareh Pour (kamancheh, geychak and vocals), the musicians will explore their relationships with their mothers, many of whom were born on overseas shores. This will be an incredibly special performance for Mother's Day.

You like close-up and personal music experiences like our Utzon Music program, this one is for you. The Studio is an intimate space for the musicians to share and celebrate family stories.
Or if you like to make a day of it when you see a show. Why not treat your mum to a lunch or share plate at Portside before you see the show together?
"I first saw Sunny Kim perform with the Australian Art Orchestra and was struck by her haunting vocals and generosity as a performer. So we’re very proud to have commissioned and to premiere her new work MotherTongue, MotherLand performed with an amazing group of women musicians Helen Svoboda, Aviva Endean, Mindy Meng Wang and Gelareh Pour. A poetic response to motherhood in relation to migration, it promises to be a very special music event. Bring your mum!"
Due to artist illness, the performance of MotherTongue, MotherLand was postponed. Customers will be contacted about the booking. We thank you for your understanding.
