Nelson Arts Festival presents RHIAN SHEEHAN: A QUIET DIVIDE

Sat 20 Oct - Sun 21 Oct

Aotearoa New Zealand

Transforming the Theatre Royal into a sublime sound and light venue, composer Rhian Sheehan delivers a truly emotive and immersive audio-visual show, showcasing his brand new album A Quiet Divide, as well as work from his previous acclaimed albums.

Featuring a full band, a local string section and a dream-like montage of captivating visuals, time-lapse, portraits, animations, landscapes and starscapes, Rhian Sheehan creates a breath-taking son et lumière.

Originally from Nelson, Sheehan’s award-winning compositions have featured on screens around the world, including the BBC, Netflix, HBO, the US Super Bowl and The Academy Awards, while his albums have amassed over 30 million streams on Spotify alone.
