Oliver Shermacher at
'Extended Play' (2019)
CIty Recital Hall presents
Co-produced by Lyle Chan and Vexations840
Performed by Oliver Shermacher
Directed by Julia Robertson
Extended Play is back in 2019! The inaugural event last year was hailed as “the best new classical music initiative Sydney has seen in years” (The Australian), and an “exhilarating festival, wonderfully supportive of local artists and ensembles, emerging talent and an audience eager to engage.” (Real Time).
Oliver's performance will be a vibrant and unusual solo act that combines movement, spoken word, and theatrics with solo clarinet. Oliver regularly includes theatrical elements into his performances, the grounding premise of his recital for the Freedman Fellowship, which he was awarded in 2018.
