What's On - Orchestra 21

 Renka with Mozart - Postponed till September 2021  

Group Ikebana Performance in Collaboration with Orchestra 21

4pm - 5pm, Saturday 19 September 2020
Rosina Auditorium, Abbotsford Convent
Fee: $25 for seat / Gold coin donation for standing
Bookings open in May 2020
Six ikebana artists will present a renka performance to the music of Mozart performed by Orchestra 21. Renka is a type of ikebana performance in which a group of artists collaborate in the creation of a harmonious work of art. Hiroshi Teshigahara first proposed the concept of Renka in the 1990’s. A number of ikebana artists take turns to add to a site. They collectively immerse themselves in the process of creation as inspiration flows from one member to the next, with each member of the group building on the ideas of the previous artist. A dynamic harmony emerges spontaneously in the work, although the artists have not previously planned the final product. 

Please note:
a. The number of tickets for Renka is limited. 
b. If you could not obtain a ticket online, you may watch the performance standing (no seat available on the day) with gold coin donation. You can stand and watch only in certain areas of the auditorium. Please follow advice from our floor managing staff. Your safety is our first priority.
