John Cage is a pretty big deal. Widely considered to be one the the 20th century's most influential composers, he was a pioneer of electroacoustic music and was a leading figure in the post-war avant-garde movement. That's got to look good on a business card, right?

The Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts introduces The Cage In Us - a festival celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of John Cage. Partnering up with Brisbane’s own Clocked Out to present the three-night festival, The Cage In Us will explore the many facets of the life and times of Mr Cage himself.
The festival will feature a concert series interpreting some of Cage’s extraordinary chamber music, electronic music and multimedia works. There is also a set of 'Music Circuses' curated by Rebecca Clunn, which sound mighty exciting, as well as John Cage inspired installations, exhibitions and performances from an array of different artists.
The big shot team of  local, national and international guests will have you so involved in the multi-arts experience you might actually think you've been re-born and returned to Brisbane as John Cage.
Supporting both free and ticketed events, The Cage In Us is set to be a storm.
