11 November @ Field of Light: Avenue of Honour ·
Presented by Vancouver Arts Centre in conjunction with Matt Ward and the Vocal Performance Initiative supported by West Australian Opera ·

Join the cast of professional and community performers from across the Great Southern as they perform a new work of choral-theatre broadcast live from inside the Field of Light: Avenue of Honour to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice.

Set against the backdrop of the First World War, this new work offers a contemporary perspective on what it means to truly remember. Created in partnership with local Noongar elders and the people of the Great Southern, By Other Eyes provides a visceral insight into our human experience in 2018.

Featuring the recorded voices of over 1000 children from across the Great Southern, a live ensemble, singers from the West Australian Opera, local soloists and a mass choir, By Other Eyes will be staged in the immersive surrounds of Bruce Munro’s Field of Light: Avenue of Honour installation on Mt Clarence, Albany.

The 7pm performance will be broadcast live on local radio and streamed online. For more information on accessing the stream please see the website.

By Other Eyes is produced by the City of Albany’s Vancouver Arts Centre in conjunction with Matt Reuben James Ward and the Vocal Performance Initiative, supported by West Australian Opera.

This project has been made possible with generous support from Lotterywest, Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (Culture and Arts), and Albany Community Radio.
