""promising and contemporary, using deep resonances of choral music, performed by a superb company... to explore contemporary ideas about isolation and alienation…the sound is simply sensational." "
Invisible Empire takes us on a journey from conformity and alienation to extreme acts of resistance. It is a live interrogation of our conflicting tendencies to conform and to rebel, and explores our astounding ability as human beings to justify our actions by any means necessary.
Fusing dynamic movement with haunting polyphonies from Siberia and Albania performed live, Invisible Empire challenges complacency and alienation in a search to understand how we can so easily lose ourselves in the morass of modern life and – sometimes – how to stand firm and resist.
