System Restart tour 2017

Younger composers with talent and attitude are redefining music, and foremost amongst them an ever greater number of women - and this is being celebrated in Icebreaker's major new programme featuring music by six fantastic, free, empowered, uncategorisable women composers of the new generation.

New music by Jobina Tinnemans, whose work includes music for table tennis players and hedge shearers, You Are Wolf's Kerry Andrew, whose output includes an opera about swimming, American Elizabeth Kelly, and Australian Kate Moore is complemented by Linda Buckley's exquisite, soaring Azure, plus Anna Meredith's Orlok and Nautilus from her surging, joyful Moshi Moshi EP's.

The project is supported by PRS for Music Foundation, and will be touring from February 2017
