Fresh from their premiere production at the Luminato Festival's monumental 400,000 square foot Hearn Generating Station, Music in the Barns brought their latest edition of acclaimed installation concerts to downtown Toronto with an imaginative multi-room transformation of the landmark Great Hall. Drawing participants through a series of provocative reflections around human life on earth, the Barns’ latest expansive, multi-media spectacle addresses urgent social and environmental issues with interactive installation, live chamber music, and politically-charged performance. Re-writing the rulebook for classical music presentation, Music in the Barns continues to defy expectations, exploring timely topics through installation art and performance for unique, immersive concert experiences.
Created for the CART/ACRT 2017 Conference Performing the Anthropocene: Setting the Stage for the End of the World (May 27-30 2017), the evening's public event is part of a larger conversation between performers, creators, and researchers.
