Sonya Holowell is a vocalist, improviser and writer working across new and experimental genres. She is descended from the Wodi Wodi people of the Dharawal nation, on the south-east coast of NSW, Australia. The contexts for her work are diverse, and she is particularly drawn to interdisciplinary collaboration, placing the voice in unusual positions to create new hybrid forms.
Sonya has performed at numerous festivals for new and experimental music including Sydney Festival, Resonant Bodies Festival, soundSCAPE and Liveworks and has collaborated with
ensembles such as the Song Company, Ensemble Offspring and Australian Art Orchestra. Her work has been shown at venues including the Sydney Opera House, Art Gallery of NSW, Museum of Contemporary Art and the National Gallery of Australia. In addition to performing, Sonya is also co-editor and writer for online arts publication ADSR Zine.
A night celebrating the notion of childlike curiosity, innocence, exploration, and freedom of creative expression. Eight experimental artists from various backgrounds will get together to play four sets of improvised music throughout the evening, in four randomly configured groups of four (so each artist plays twice).
