1big1 Closing Party


On 28th March, we performed as part of 1big1's exhibition closing party at The Anthony Burgess Centre, featuring apocalyptic arias, audio visual performances, and post human synth ambience. 

Artist and curator Sam Meech had the following kind words about the event:

I fortuitously stumbled across Emma and the Opera Shack team performing in Sand Bar in Manchester. I was struck by the lively  yet relaxed and open atmosphere they created and the mind-blowing talent of the performers. Inspired, I asked them if they could help me stage an event at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation, as a closing party to an exhibition. I suggested a theme and Emma and the team came up with 3 arias to perform and worked out the staging in a way that would surprise the audience and immerse them in the performance. People were blown away!
