South Australian Premiere and Exclusive
An extraordinary performance of music and theatre by Singapore’s foremost performance artist. The Straits Times
Inspired by her mentor, the legendary John Cage, Margaret Leng Tan is the world’s first professional toy piano virtuoso.
A major force in the American avant-garde music scene, Tan uses an array of small instruments and found objects including the toy piano, music boxes, two-note paper accordions and even a bicycle bell, to create her unique blend of music theatre.
Ground-breaking and utterly unconventional, Tan is proof that ‘poor tools require better skills’.
One night only.
