I went to see Voice Weavers on Saturday night. They are an A cappella group which are about to travel to Vietnam to compete in an international choral festival. They are really good. I liked the power of the conductor in this photo, and the separate spaces creating two very different framed scenes. Definitely worth seeing this group. Find out more at the link below.
Sadly another powerful force, the ocean, has been battering the north coast for a few months of this year. Creating a significantly lower beach, which is resulting in the dunes being eroded more than usual, and very established trees having the sand eroded out from under them. There must be about four large trees down, in a two kilometre stretch of beach from New Brighton to South Golden Beach. Apparently the dunes have recovered before - but it is a shame to see trees washed away.
Contacts for Dune Care are on the Byron Council's website.
My submission for Swell Sculpture Festival 2013 has been accepted! The festival runs from September 13 - 22 at Currumbin Beach, QLD. I'm going to make the piece above into a six foot high sculpture that can be viewed from all directions. The title is "All the World's a Stage" referring to a monologue from Shakespeare's play - As You Like It. You can get more info about Swell and the events leading up to it at the following link http://www.swellsculpture.com.au/
Also on the stage we saw a fantastic performance last weekend of "Red" a play about Mark Rothko and a series of paintings he was commissioned to make for the Seagrams company in New York City in the 1950s. It is a two man show with Rothko's studio assistant providing an excellent second character to tell this fascinating story. The season runs from 27 April to 19 May at the Playhouse Theatre, QPAC, Brisbane.
