Acclaimed Melbourne composer and musician Adam Simmons returns to fortyfivedownstairs for four nights in August, with a rare opportunity to experience his 'The Usefulness of Art' suite performed by a world-class 20-piece ensemble.

The concerts will be the first time The Usefulness of Art has been performed by the Adam Simmons Creative Music Ensemble alongside an art installation by Filipino sculptor Diokno Pasilan and featuring costumes by Christine Crawshaw.

While The Usefulness of Art suite - with its sublime meditations on the qualities of acceptance, empathy, generosity, compassion and faith - is already known to fans of Simmons’ avant-garde trio, Origami, it has only once before been performed live by a larger ensemble, during its creative development process.
