A Nocturne in the Key of Air

Breathing life into big data and animated by children’s imagination, Aria is an ethereal encounter of vocal performances, dance and immersive light installations in a night-time conservatory. Responsive to the ongoing pandemic and a new vision for what international productions may become, the pathbreaking promenade experience unites the Grammy and Pulitzer Prize-winning Theatre of Voices, appearing via hologram, the Hong Kong Children’s Choir and cross-disciplinary artists in a song of air beyond the Anthropocene.

Aria is a promenade experience woven with music, art and dance that takes visitors through a night-time greenhouse.
The VR version of Aria offers a 360-degree viewing experience, with cameras set at the POVs of insects, birds and more.
Members of the Hong Kong Children's Choir catch their breath in the overheated Anthropocene.
Theatre of Voices (Denmark) shares the stage with Hong Kong Children's Choir – a new vision for a more sustainable and resilient form of international productions.
Theatre of Voices “performs” in Hong Kong as ethereal projection on mist and flowing air.
