Somewhere in the Light NOV 2022
In an intimate evening of music and archival art, a songwriter and a cellist weave moving tributes and stories to acknowledge loss. The artists wonder out loud what it is to remember well, and to honour the gifts we carry from those who are no longer present. There will be light refreshments after the event and a gentle invitation to share remembrances in a participatory artwork. You are warmly invited into a space of rest, silence and contemplation.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This work is a performing arts space dedicated to acknowledging loss and to the practice of remembrance as a life-affirming endeavour. It contains themes of loss, death, dying and suicide. Parental guidance is recommended. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised this event contains names and images of deceased people.
