‘Through the Looking Glass’ is a creative development for ‘The Reckoning’ and is part of the EDGE Sydenham Festival


Sadly, we need to postpone today’s event.


‘The Reckoning’ is a new chamber work by Michelle St Anne and Sue Jo Wright, with dance artist Imogen Cranna, and ensemble in residence, Microfiche – a six-piece improvising ensemble.

In a first-time collaboration between Michelle St Anne and Sue Jo Wright, St Anne shares her framework for ‘composing self’ – an embodied practice of collaboration, constructing safe, collaborative and self-determined spaces where artists can take risks, extend their practice and reckon with their own methodologies. The collaborative process between St Anne and Wright aims to develop a shared commentary on how we hear and what it means to listen by interrogating ableist tropes and the Deaf experience.

‘Through the Looking Glass’, gives you a peek into the ‘composing self’ rehearsal environment.

Artists: Michelle St Anne, Sue Jo Wright, Imogen Cranna
Auslan Interpreter: Marnie Van Vliet
Microfiche Musicians: Nick Calligeros – trumpet, Sam Gill – alto saxophone
