The cutting-edge classical string band collectif9, in collaboration with the energetic and innovative quartet Architek Percussion, present their new show My Backyard, Somewhere, a reflection of our malleable sense of belonging in a vast country. Inspired by the text of poet Kaie Kellough, this project explores boundaries, location, and sense of belonging of people: our displaced sense of home, travelling to and from places that have home-like meaning to us, and the elements of communication - interpretation and misinterpretation - between people and places.
Premiered in June 2018
“the audience can expect a modern whirlwind of sounds, where the traditional classical and avant-garde, jazz, electro, dance, groove, and others blend and become one.”
— Frédéric Cardin,
“Underground et somewhat experimental, this show is unconventional, but truly compelling to the viewer.”
