Meditation Hour  

04/10/22Chippendale Sydney, NSWSeymour Centre
Time: 9:00pm. Admission: Adult $30, Conc $25, Fulltime Student $20. Age restrictions: All Ages. Address: Cnr City Road and Cleveland Street. After several big days of ideas, sound, rhythm, melody, textures, moods, listening, watching, and sharing, we can all slow down, take stock, and enjoy master cellist-singer-improviser, John Napier, and an eclectic range of percussionists in Meditation Hour. Conceived and directed by Taikoz and Boom! Artistic Director, Ian Cleworth, Meditation Hour sees a rota of soloists move in and around, on and off stage, improvising over an ever-changing sound design by composer, Timothy Constable, and a resonating temple bowl. Meditation Hour is an immersive experience for performers and audience alike: sit, lie, stand, move, and meditate with us on the stage of the Everest Theatre and enjoy a calming, refreshing 60 minutes of sound, texture, and feeling.
