Paul Kelly in Thirteen Ways to Look at Birds

AussieTheatre has TWO double passes to giveaway for Paul Kelly in Thirteen Ways to Look at Birds at the Sydney Coliseum Theatre West HQ Sydney on Saturday 29th February @ 8:00pm.

Australian music legend Paul Kelly brings together musicians from broad-ranging backgrounds to perform bird-inspired poems, written by John Keats, Thomas Hardy, Emily Dickinson, Judith Wright, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Gwen Harwood, A D Hope and others.

Birds have fascinated poets for centuries, not just for their song and flight but as symbols: of hope, freedom, love, communication, peace, luck good and bad, and migration.  And what better way to honour them than by sending songs out into the air? 

Thirteen Ways to Look at Birds features Seraphim Trio with Anna Goldsworthy on piano, Helen Ayres on violin and Tim Nankervis on cello, along with composer James Ledger and singer-songwriters Paul Kelly and Alice Keath. Together these artists create an evocative soundscape, each poem its own world – delicate and intimate at times, colossal and grinding at others, with all states in between. Banjo with pizzicato strings, synthesizer drones with piano, processed guitar with glockenspiel are just a few of the combinations to be heard.  

Thirteen Ways to Look at Birds is a unique marriage of electronics, acoustic instruments and the human voice, celebrating winged creatures from the barn owl to the nightingale, from the thornbill to the falcon, from the magpie to the swan.

Competition closes Wednesday 26th February 2020 at 6pm AEST. Winners will be contacted via email.
