Peter Humble's film of the chamber opera TURBULENCE is installed at Arts House, Melbourne, during the period 17th November to 5th December, as part of Chamber Made Opera's IntimatelyEpic season of art projects placed in public-viewing contexts round about the city of Melbourne. The film is presented here in a single-screen version, with headphones.
TURBULENCE was originally created for a live performance season in 2013, with a libretto by Cynthia Troup and music by Juliana Hodkinson, and has since been released as podcast, and as multi-format film for viewing in galleries, public viewing big screens and the internet.
