Event description

Description

Supertonic are back where they love to be - pushing the boundaries of choral music. After a year of sold-out performances in 2018, Leaving the Table: A story of relationship, told through song will blur the lines between choir, theatre, and abstract expression.

A relationship between two people can take many forms, and can bring much joy. But what do you do when you need to get out - when it feels like you no longer belong - when you've forgotten where you end and the other person begins? How do you reconcile your desire to be alone in a world that can’t accept solitude? This concert will explore this emotional journey with a repertoire of music from the indie-pop genre, reimaged in glorious harmony to tell a story that can be painful, heart-wrenching, but ultimately uplifting.

The programme includes music from Imogen Heap, Bon Iver, Damien Rice, Florence Welch, Depeche Mode and The Beach Boys, among others. Dramatic performances from Wellington actors Cassandra Tse and James Cain will steer the story, with scenes between the songs to characterise the choir’s poignant lyrics. Together, this becomes a uncharted exploration of what can be achieved when this style of music is channeled through the live vocals of a high quality choir.

Supertonic is a Wellington-based choir that seeks to take choral music to different places and new heights. Supertonic is well known for its innovative and no-compromise concerts, from those exploring ways to amplify voices that are seldom heard, to its all-out rock extravaganzas that turn the concept of a choral concert on its head. Supertonic has consistently gone from strength to strength, with all its 2018 concerts sold out.
