7 Great Inventions

7 Great Inventions of the Modern Industrial Age

Humanity has always sought to extend the boundaries of knowledge through innovation and discovery. Yet, just over a hundred years ago there was no space travel, bionic ear, cinema, telephone network… or atomic bomb. The innovation of the 20th century created opportunities and choices like never before. And it changed us.

This performance is a provoking and entertaining journey through seven innovations that continue to shape humanity, the way we behave and the way we think.

In Conversation: The World of the Composer with Sally Greenaway 

Enter the world of composer Sally Greenaway, as she talks with Artistic Director of The Street, Caroline Stacey. Greenaway was the inaugural recipient of the Merlyn Myer Fund & Melbourne Recital Centre Composing Women’s Commission, for which she wrote the 7 Great Inventions of the Modern Industrial Age. In that same year the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra premiered her new orchestral work Worlds within Worlds which was written as part of the Cybec 21st Century Australian Composers program. In 2010 Greenaway graduated from the Royal College of Music, London, where she received the Lucy Anne Jones award. She has more than 60 works published. Join us to hear about the artistic, collaborative process of creating 7 Great Inventions, and the world of one of Australia’s great modern woman composers.
