Whether it is nostalgia or narcissism, I wanted to include here some photographs from a recent performance, which took place at the Mission to Seafarers in Melbourne as a part of the Going Down Swinging series, “One Night Wonders”.
Warm thanks to the entire team at GDS, Abe Nouk and Luke Ryan for a very beautiful evening.
The images feel beautiful in their own way, mainly because the location was both striking and sumptuous, and patently unnerving for a lapsed Catholic like me, given that it was a church. The outcome of the evening will hopefully be a beautiful live album, featuring about an hour of spoken word poetry from yours truly.
If you are in Melbourne on either 25 September or 28 November, I would like to recommend that you check out these gigs (details on the GDS website here) as Felix Nobis and Sean M Whelan and the Mime Set will be featuring. GDS hopes that the longer form will provide performance artists with an opportunity to share a more extended body of work outside of the context of short feature and I would heartily recommend both of these evenings.
Thank you very kindly to all who attended, I was profoundly honoured and flattered to see so many warm faces in the audience.
I hope that you will look out for the album when it is available in a few from the Going Down Swinging website.
