Luminescence Chamber Singers | Of the Body – Hobart

29 June 2024 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm AEST

$20 – $45
of the body

From Andreas Vesalius’ groundbreaking De Humani Corporis Fabrica to the drawings of Da Vinci and Dürer, the 16th century heralded a new fascination with the human figure. Human dissection transformed our understanding of anatomy, and the body became the subject of scientific and artistic fixation.

In the spirit of Buxtehude’s much-loved Membra Jesu Nostri, each movement of Dan Walker’s new song cycle Of The Body is devoted to an anatomical part: the eyes, the hands, the mouth, the feet, the blood, and finally, the heart.

In a concert that traverses sex, sensuality, the senses, and more, Luminescence Chamber Singers explore our relationship to our corporeal form; our flesh and blood.
