JUST VISITING

Jan 16, 2014  ·  2 min read

We’re feeling super cultured and even slightly intellectual this year. The Sydney Festival, far from being the booze fuelled party bus that we had expected is instead challenging our brains and broadening our minds. And that is a good thing because, let’s face it, most of the time we’re simply looking at cats on Tumblr.

One such mind-expander is the cinematic time capsule, Visitors, from visionary director Godfrey Reggio and composer Philip Glass which will be showing at the Sydney Opera House next Thursday and Friday, January 23 and 24 respectively.

Thirty years after their groundbreaking Koyaanisqatsi (Qatsi Trilogy), director Godfrey Reggio and composer Philip Glass have joined forces with filmmaker Jon Kane to create a cinematic time capsule for the 21st century. Like the Qatsi films before it, Visitors weaves an unforgettable spell through mind-altering imagery and hypnotic soundscapes. Reggio’s visual poetry and Glass’s haunting score combine in a wordless ode to modern life.

Conducted by Michael Riesman and performed by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, this landmark collaboration promises to be a truly captivating live experience. Coming to Sydney after its premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, conducted by Michael Riesman and performed by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, this landmark collaboration promises to be a truly captivating live experience.
