The work of Elaine Mitchener spans a wealth of artistic contexts and disciplines. Rooted in improvisation, contemporary music theatre and performance art, the British-born vocalist, movement artist and composer performs her celebrated movement opera ‘Of Leonardo da Vinci’ at Rewire 2019. Exploring the universality of death and rebirth, ‘Of Leonardo da Vinci’ melds vocal improvisation, sound art, image and movement into a singular artistic expression. Starring Mitchener in a leading role, the performance is directed by Dam van Huynh, and features music by David Toop and a film by Barry Lewis.
