“Who knew that scrap yards and dumps were treasure troves for the makings of new and marvelous musical instruments?” – Winnipeg Free Press
Set in an otherworldly, retro-futuristic land, Children of Metropolis is inspired by the ending of Fritz Lang’s iconic 1927 cult classic film, Metropolis. The ensemble features five musicians with the agility of gymnasts and an extraordinary percussive drive playing original music on instruments crafted from unusual recycled and salvaged materials. Created by composer and percussionist Gregory Kozak, this high-energy performance will excite the senses as you see and hear the transformation of scrap into art and art into music in a performance unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
