With Ukraine


DeanStevenson(AUS)+ArcoSetOrchestra,conductedbyGaryWain


Musician, composer, and part of the furniture at Mona, Dean Stevenson writes and performs a new piece from scratch every day for the 4pm project.

Over the course of Dark Mofo, Dean will be inside the Nolan Gallery composing a sinfonietta. As he spends time writing, Dean will focus his intentions on the people of Ukraine. The resulting piece will be taken to the Odeon and performed by the Arco Set Orchestra on the longest night of the year.

The evening will begin with works Dean has written on Hiroshima, Kabul and other war stories, before inviting us to listen and reflect on the current atrocities being perpetrated in Ukraine. Come together for a brief moment and stand in solidarity.

Show Program can be found here.
