2011 AUCKLAND ARTS FESTIVAL: O CAMBODIA

NZTrio was joined by three Cambodian folk musicians – Him Savy, Keo Dorivan and Him Sophy – to perform compositions by Chinary Ung (Cambodia/US), Him Sophy (Cambodia), Dame Gillian Whitehead (NZ), and Jack Body (NZ). These new works were inspired by Cambodia’s turbulent and tragic recent history.

MASSIVE COMPANY AND NZTRIO: MY BED MY UNIVERSE

2013 marked the start of a project that forged new ground for NZTrio and theatre ensemble Massive Company. We worked together with composer/performer Chris O’Connor to develop original music that is fully integrated into a theatrical presentation of Gary Henderson’s script My Bed, My Universe. We workshopped and experimented closely with Chris and the team at Massive Company throughout 2013, developing and evolving what became an astonishing production for performances in 2014.

VICISSITUDES – MIKE NOCK TRIO AND NZTRIO

An alternation between opposite and contrasting things

Jazz and classical music came together on stage in 2013 when two of New Zealand’s best-loved trios combined their considerable talents in a special concert featuring Mike Nock’s new work Vicissitudes. A musical celebration of the worlds of jazz and classical music, Vicissitudes reflects on our shared ability to overcome dire circumstances. Vicissitudes premiered to a sold-out audience at the Christchurch Arts Festival in 2013.
