Paul Scott-Williams (Goulburn Regional Conservatorium), Caroline Stacey (The Street Theatre, Canberra), and your old mate – 13 November 2018

It was wonderful to zip down the Hume Highway earlier this week to see THE WEIGHT OF LIGHT pick up a 2018 Canberra Critics Circle Award.

Congratulations to all involved in our song cycle: Paul Scott-Williams at the Goulburn Regional Conservatorium, which commissioned the work; Caroline Stacey at The Street Theatre for the powerful direction and so much more; James Humberstone for the extraordinary score; and exemplary performers Michael Lampard and Alan Hicks.

Big thanks to Katy Mutton for the exquisitely evocative art work (as commissioned by The Street Theatre) that was used to market the work.

Last but by no means least, thank you to everyone who came to one of the shows – there is nothing like an audience, and an audience’s response.

Might this be the official end of this project? Hard to tell. But perhaps it might be nice to leave with the words to the last song in the cycle:

 

FROM HERE

 

From here

I mend

 

From here

there is a bend

in the river

 

From here

there will be

 

the sea-hawk and the shore

and the red-belly black snake

in the rocks

 

so stand with me

stand with me now

 

From here

we mend

 

From here

we mend

 

From here

we mend

together
