Kattrin's Drum is a new musical work by Alan Lawrence, performed by Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s principal percussionist David Montgomery. The sweeping composition was inspired by Queensland Theatre Company’s production of Mother Courage and Her Children by Bertolt Brecht.

A dramatic dialogue takes place between the live performer and the four loudspeakers that surround audience and performer alike. The sound palettes of both the live and quadraphonic elements of the work range from the tantalisingly delicate to the boldly dramatic betraying the theatrical origins of the work.

The performance of Kattrin's Drum will be punctuated with an opportunity for the artists to contextualise the work and field questions from the audience, in the following format:

- Kattrin's Drum (world premiere performance)
- Composer, Alan Lawrence, and percussionist, David Montgomery, in conversation - concerning the new work and the music/theatre relationship
- Kattrin's Drum (repeat performance)

The audience is invited to join the artists in the foyer post-performance to discuss the piece.

Kattrin's Drum is not music for the theatre, it is music as theatre.

Tickets $17-$20
