Sista Zai and I formed a connection at the screening of The Last Survivor at Arts in Action in May 2012. Sista Zai is a founding member of Stillwaters Storytelling Collective - well worth checking out, as is Arts is Action - the collaborative social action film nights at Bella Union.
Not too long after I moved to Melbourne I found out about a choir directed by the incredible, Sue Johnson, member of one of my all-time favourite bands, Coco’s Lunch. It’s been a weekly slice of heaven to sing with a group of fun, vivacious women at the beautiful Prana House. This photo is not the room we rehearse in, but it’s the room that grabbed my attention the first time I visited, so sunny and inviting!
This month, on Wednesday the 18th of July my choir has been invited to perform at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art in Melbourne. I’m more than a little excited… Our performance will be part of the program for the Berlinde De Bruyckere, ‘We Are All Flesh’ Exhibition. If you are not familiar with her works, here is a snapshot… not particularly child friendly, but amazing, haunting sculptures of humans, animals and trees in metamorphosis.
It’s a free public event. So if you’re in Melbourne and keen for a night of singing and sculpture please come and enjoy it with us…
