KILLING MUSIC BY TOPOLOGY

+ WELCOME TO COUNTRY BY AUNTY DELMAE BARTON

Presented by Restrung Productions and Metro Arts

In this moment of pure catharsis, Topology offers a collective release to wipe the slate clean and prompt a renewed energy and sense of optimism.

Known for their evocative, pulse-driven and unorthodox mix of piano, strings and sax, Topology has been surprising audiences with their distinct sound since 1997. 

In Killing Music, Topology will indulge in a moment of catharsis; expressing the fury and frustration built up over 18 months of social disruption. Featuring iconic pieces from Topology’s extensive repertoire, Killing Music offers a collective release – a cleansing primal scream to wipe the slate clean and prompt a renewed energy and sense of optimism.

THE ARTISTS

Topology

Founded in 1997, Topology is now established as a leader of creativity in the Arts in Australia, creating new original work, collaborating across style and artform boundaries and building creativity in young people and communities while strengthening the vibrancy of a collegial arts scene. WIth over 24 years of accumulated original repertoire and an insatiable drive to create new work, Topology has a well-established reputation for experimenting with surprising combinations of genres, theatrical staging and cross art form collaboration to create thought-provoking music experiences for audiences of all ages, backgrounds and tastes. Formerly Resident Artists at Brisbane Powerhouse for 18 years, Topology has an extensive discography of 16 Albums, has produced countless evening-length works and before COVID, toured extensively nationally and internationally.

Topology are famous for the breadth and depth of their collaborations. Undaunted by stylistic barriers, the quintet has created stunning new work with partners in theatre (Geoffrey Rush, Neil Armfield, Queensland Theatre Company), classical music (the Brodsky Quartet, the Southern Cross Soloists), contemporary art music (Terry Riley, Speak Percussion), dance (Expressions Dance Company, Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre, Jody Oberfelder), puppetry (Dead Puppet Society), contemporary jazz (Trichotomy, Loops), popular songwriting (Kate Miller-Heidke, Katie Noonan), comedy (the Kransky Sisters, Gerry Connolly), Asian music (Dheeraj Shrestha, Ubiet) and Indigenous Australian music (William Barton).
