‘David Bowie Nothing Has Changed’, featuring iOTA, Tim Rogers, Steve Kilbey, Deborah Conway & Adalita and backed by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, will be performed at Hamer Hall for two nights of the Melbourne Festival in October.
The ‘Nothing Has Changed’ production was created by Amanda Pelman. Who produced the first event with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. “The death of David Bowie in January inspired Mark Sutcliffe at the SSO to put a show together and he called me in to create it”, Amanda tells Noise11.com. “It is sad that Bowie’s demise was the catalyst but if it causes a re-discovery of this remarkable body of work then as I titled the show , nothing has changed”.
‘Nothing Has Changed’ will be performed in Melbourne on October 15 and 16.
Another feature of the 2016 Melbourne Festival is a series of shows by Australian singer songwriter Paul Kelly teaming with Irish-French Chanteuse Camille O’Sullivan. The pair will perform the words of poet W.B. Yeats and other Irish poets in ‘Ancient Rain’ at the Arts Centre Playhouse from 12-15 October.
Other Melbourne Festival shows include a performance from Joshua Redman & Brad Mehldau, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra performing the music of Star Trek and Lisa Gerrard performing her latest album Blank Page.
