In conjunction with UC Arts, Empress Theatre Collective presents Free Radicals, a musical response to the often unsung achievements of women in science and technology. This evolving song cycle features the works of New Zealand female composers, songwriters and instrumentalists from a variety of genres. Free Radicals celebrates the lives, discoveries, work and achievements of women ranging from stargazers and mystics to mathematicians and inventors.
This special event features new compositions by Rosa Elliott, Naomi Ferguson, Glenda Keam, Misfit Mod, The Swan Sisters, Ariana Tikao and Sheree Waitoa, with Erin Harrington narrating the cycle through spoken word interludes.
