Elizabeth Gadsby’s designs feature in the Holland Festival

Elizabeth Gadsby designed the ambitious and extraordinary set and costumes for Sydney Chamber Opera’s ANTARTICA, which premiered this week at the Holland Festival to standing ovations!

ANTARTICA explores the historical, mythical and scientific conceptions and stories about the southern continent. With a mesmerising combination of musical elements from early and new music styles, we are transported into another world.

“The impressive, almost overwhelming set by Elizabeth Gadsby is framed as a 9 metre square of video panels; it has similarities to the East Antarctic ice shelf: unusual, very large, mostly very white and sometimes extremely bright.”- Limelight
