Symphonic Sites was supported by the City of Melbourne Arts Grant Program and the Arts Centre Melbourne. Rawcus receives funding support from Creative Victoria’s Organisation Investment Program and is supported by the City of Port Phillip and the Shulu Foundation.
Symphonic Sites was an exciting creative exchange for children, teens and young adults with and without disability using body, voice, imagination, eclectic instruments, people and place, promoting self-expression & inclusivity through play, discovery and collaboration in spectacular ways with the Rawcus Ensemble and guest musicians Dan Witton, Jenny Thomas and Steph O’Hara.
Symphonic Sites performances took place simultaneously and seemingly unexpectedly at three different location in and around the Arts Centre Melbourne at The Channel, Southbank and Hamer Hall, giving participants the opportunity to connect with others, express their creativity, learn skills in music and theatre, perform with an ensemble and to the public all within one day!
“We got applause, we got people asking to join us – and sometimes they did which changed the performance in exciting ways.”
