4, 12 e 19 July 2016 at 9 pm
Fondazione Merz, Torino

entrance free

Meteorite in Giardino programme returns this year with Songlines, on the trail of a continent, Oceania, more than ever synonymous today with the beauty and fragility of our planet.
This part of the world, subject to the consequences of climate change, is evoked through the series of events with a programme of classical and contemporary classical music during the three evenings of 4, 12 and 19 July.
The common denominator of this 2016 edition is inspired by the tradition of native Australians and their sung melodies to emphasise the beauty and importance of each element in nature. In this way, they drew imaginary points which, when joined together, form lines and maps of their territory, in a perfect symbiosis between nature and artistic expression: the Songlines.
