AN ALL-ORIGINAL SYMPHONIC LOVE LETTER TO GAMING
Melbourne-based comedy trio Tripod join The TSO for one performance only of their symphonic program This Gaming Life, September 12, 2017 at Federation Concert Hall in Hobart.
Described as an ‘all-original symphonic love letter to gaming’, This Gaming Life was originally commissioned for the MSO in collaboration with BAFTA winning games composer Austin Wintory, and opened at Melbourne’s Hamer Hall to rave reviews.
Since their breakthrough onto the Melbourne comedy scene in the mid-1990’s, comedy trio Tripod have firmly established their reputation for juggling comedy, music and narrative in endless exhilarating combinations which has seen successful Edinburgh Festival appearances, numerous television appearances and musical collaborations with artists including Gotye, Missy Higgins and Eddie Perfect.
Tripod continue to apply an intense level of craft in both comedy and music, and combine both disciplines in a rich and satisfying way – an ability that has cemented them as a much loved cultural fixture in Australia, and regulars of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
