Sydney Art Quartet: CROSSROADS


A powerful, exclusive, two-night-only premiere performance… not to be missed!
Wed 27 and Thurs 28 November 7pm at Emanuel Synagogue Woollahra

Emanuel Synagogue Woollahra hosts an extraordinary, multi-media event by the Sydney Art Quartet in November:
CROSSROADS – featuring Steve Reich's intensely moving Different Trains – combined with a dramatic theatre & cinema installation and special guest artists.

CROSSROADS poignantly and dramatically explores human rights, the Holocaust & Survivor Syndrome
using music, human movement, archival and art footage & vocal testimony.

Crossroads features a rare performance of the Steve Reich’s Grammy Award-winning Different Trains by one of Australia’s most original music ensembles,
and will also include an oversized cinema installation by Gabriela Sá & Mariana Garcia (Brazil),
choreography by Anton Projects (Bangarra Dance Theatre) and vocals from young singing sensation, Avital Greenberg.
This breathtaking – but ultimately uplifting and life-affirming - premiere event has just two performances.

Created by Sydney Art Quartet Artistic Director James Beck, Crossroads weaves historic and contemporary stories
into a concert experience that will touch multiple senses.

Since 2015 the Sydney Art Quartet has created over 100 performances with some of our most exciting creatives,
including David Wenham, John Olsen and Bill Henson - often using experimental elements such as scent,
blindfolds, and choreography to tell stories of human struggle, lost cultures and the natural world.

Emanuel Synagogue is the home where people can live their Judaism in a contemporary world, while drawing on ancient teachings and traditions.
Welcoming all to its pluralistic, dynamic and diverse community, the synagogue is also a cultural hub for the Jewish and wider community,
hosting outstanding musical, theatrical & other arts events.
