The Aspirations of Daise Morrow

PRESENTED BY THE CANBERRA THEATRE CENTRE IN ASSOCIATION WITH BRINK PRODUCTIONS

Concert 15

THE ONLY DEATH TO FEAR IS THE DEATH OF LOVE

A word-for-word adaptation of Patrick White’s short story Down at the Dump, featuring the Zephyr Quartet. Brutally funny, profound in its understanding of human nature, and filled with magic and wonder.

Actors, musicians and audience share the space in a circle of burnt earth beneath a canvas of Australian sky. The work shifts and swirls, drawing the audience into the sensual immediacy of a strangely familiar world – the suburb of Barranugli.

Composers: Belinda Gehlert, Hilary Kleinig, Jason Thomas, Emily Tulloch
Cast: Paul Blackwell, Lucy Lehmann, Genevieve Picot, James Smith and Zephyr Quartet
Director: Chris Drummond
Designer: Michael Hankin
Musical Director: Hilary Kleinig
