The Australian Lisa Moore is known for having been a child prodigy on the piano, although she has dedicated most of her life to musical research by collaborating with today’s most significant composers and ensembles. Each of her recitals is also a theatrical spectacle, because she has studied, above all, the connections between music and stage action (starting with the Living Theatre’s happenings) and the interaction between music and visual movement. She is part of a generation of women who have dedicated themselves to contemporary music: herself, Ursula Oppens, Vicky Chow, Sarah Cahill, Margaret Leng Tan, Lisa Bielawa, Jennifer Higdon, Gloria Cheng, Meredith Monk, Lera Auerbach, Vanessa Wagner, Ashley Bathgate, Anne Le Baron, Gabriela Lena Frank, Caroline Shaw, Tania J. León, Angélica Negrón, Zoe Keating, Maya Beiser, Anna Thorvaldsdóttir, Missy Mazzoli, Julia Wolfe, Lois V Vierk, Annea Lockwood, and many others.
