New commission: Kate Moore

We are very pleased to announce that Fonds Podiumkinsten has awarded us Icebreaker the funds to commission a major new work from Kate Moore for a project in association with the European Space Agency.

Kate is a Dutch-Australian composer, whose music has been performed by Icebreaker in our System Restart project.  The work for the programme The Dam was arranged by Kate for us, and it subsequently won the prestigious Matthijs Vermoeulen Prize for composition, the first time it had been won by a woman.  The new work is scheduled for premiere in autumn 2019
