Also Phie Ambo's film poem "Songs from the Soil", which features TOV's live performances of known Pärt works, will be shown.

Last and First Men in Sydney
On 2 June, TOV will be performing at the Sydney Opera House in the Australian premiere of Jóhann Jóhannsson’s multimedia work “Last and First Men“, one of the final achievements by the great Icelandic composer - and close collaborator to TOV - before he past away in 2018.
Based on Olaf Stapledon’s visionary 1930 sci-fi novel, “Last and First Men” is a unique mix of film and fiction with breathtaking 16mm footage, narration and not least Jóhannsson’s mesmerising score, performed by Sydney Symphony Orchestra with Theatre of Voices' Else Torp and Kate Macoboy - led by Benjamin Northey.
