8pm Christine Johnston and Sonya Lifschitz: Crumb’s Lyre
Christine Johnston as Madame Lark joins macrocosmic piano siren Sonya Lifschitz as they unleash their duelling scores on the eve of the festival. Neither cabaret nor recital, this delicious piece of surreal late night theatre places legendary composer George Crumb’s zodiac-inspired fantasy pieces amidst the sounds of the Antipodes.
Localjinni 2020 Program of Video Walks
Are you the kind of person who wants to understand the many identities of a place? Our video walks tell the ‘inside story’, only the locals know. Do you love night-time cities but don’t want to walk alone? Join us on a participatory walk revealing the CBR’s hidden spaces and narratives of place. (Supported by CMAG, Contour 556/2020, participating artist / historians and the Australian National University School of Art and Design.
