Emo Phase: Dan Thorpe in Focus

Concert or Performance

23 Apr 2021 to 25 Apr 2021 Once Only Event

Lots of people have an emo phase, Dan Thorpe’s just lasted a bit longer. It’s his thirtieth birthday, he’s a concert pianist, but he still just wants to shred sad, queer bangers. Join Forest Collective and piano maverick Dan for a night of high energy, genre defying music for piano and ensemble, revisiting repertoire from the last ten years of his career, plus world premiere concerti by Cat Hope and Dan himself.

Friday 23 April 7.30pm (Preview)
