The Category is…

Part laboratory, part sideshow-alley realness, The Category is… is BIFEM’s first ever immersive platform that invites audiences into an array of simultaneous activities across the Saturday of the festival. From individual audience immersion VR experiences to group participatory installations for 20 audience members, this suite of participatory works is an amazing collection of new explorations into the very nature of music and ritual, and remarkably all are FREE!

NEWTON ARMSTRONG 

Newton Armstrong’s music receives a rare Australian outing with this brand-new work, fresh from its London premiere. To have the composer himself at the helm of the electronics makes for a very special 2019 BIFEM début. Teaming up with French star cellist | composer Séverine Ballon, the return of the performance lecture to the BIFEM roster of events gives audiences an insight into the collaborative nature and processes of preparing new music.
