Designed and performed by Powell Flutes Artist Amelia Lukas, Natural Homeland is a multimedia, tour de force program of music for solo flute, piccolo, alto flute, bass flute, and electronics, that delves deep into the meaning of home in light of current events. This timely show weaves together stories of natural and human disaster, political unrest and displacement, but also of hope and inner sanctuary. A uniquely arranged version of the haunting Ukrainian folk song Plyve Kacha sets the tone.
Celebrated for her multimedia directorial vision, Lukas is the founder and former Director of New York’s highly acclaimed Ear Heart Music series (“scintillating; phenomenal programming; impeccably curated; truly original” – Time Out New York) and brings her multifaceted concert aesthetic to this performance with beautiful, program-specific dance, lighting, videography, and poetry.
“This is a reflective, restorative and important program that draws expansive connections around ideas of shelter, belonging, and freedom, all offered through Lukas’ riveting performance… The scope of extended techniques and global palette of sounds featured in these works is stunning, and rarely heard on the concert stage.”
