A celebration and exploration of lyric through performance and debate, involving singers, poets, composers, instrumentalists, directors and academics. The research questions include, but are not limited to, embodiment, liveness, relationships between words and music, relationships between the dramatic and the lyric, and the application of lyric beyond song.

With a Keynote Address by opera and musical director Jo Davies, which itself will be a practice as research demonstration and performance, the two days will comprise performances across many genres and styles of music which seek to address the central question from different perspectives through practice as research.
