While traditional road maps have been replaced with global positioning systems and remotely piloted
aircraft (drones) are a familiar device, maps still play a significant role in our lives.
The Opening of the 21st Shepparton Festival considers a ‘Festival as a Map’ and the process of
being ‘mapped’ and ‘mapping’.
Join us for the opening of Sean Rafferty’s Festival commissioned Cartonography exhibition. See
the premier of Matt Head’s Sound Map and be entertained by a series of special Inventi Ensemble
performances. Three unique ensembles will feature works from Telemann and Bach to Peter
Sculthorpe and Gilles Silvestrini. Baroque treasures, Spanish dances and evocative new Australian
works, Inventi offers a tasting sample of more music to come in the festival!
