For Immediate Release:
Topology’s Queensland At Home tour comes to Stanthorpe on Easter Sunday at 10 am at the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery for a special preview of a new film and music created by local, young composers.
Several local composers have been working with John Babbage of Topology for the last few months creating new music for this special performance and preview of a short film about Stanthorpe by Gabriele Trabucco.
This excerpt is specific to the Stanthorpe area. The whole film of Queensland at Home, which celebrates many Queensland communities, will be presented at the Stanthorpe Little Theatre on May 4th.
“The Queensland at Home production is by far the largest tour undertaken by Topology. By the end of June, we will have worked with communities and students and presented Queensland at Home in 42 towns in regional Queensland,” says Christa Powell, Creative Director – Topology.
“John Babbage, our Top Up Program Manager, has travelled over 40,000kms so far to deliver composition workshops with students prior to the Queensland at Home performances. He has been working with young Stanthorpe composers for this performance.”
“Lachlan Smith, Cameron Smith and Hubert Creevy have created a wonderful sound track to this film and we look forward to being able to perform their music live at the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery as a special free Easter performance for the community.”
“Topology’s mission is to unleash creativity and to foster connections and nurture potential with communities, audiences, peers and young people. This project has provided us with the opportunity to reach more communities and support creative communities in regional and rural Queensland,” Christa says.
With 21 years on the scene, Topology has become known as one of Queensland’s finest arts organisations, ARIA-nominated with 16 albums and countless tours and performances in Australia and overseas. Topology are an important player in the Australian music landscape.
This special presentation has been made possible by support from the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery, Arts Queensland and the Southern Downs Regional Council through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF). RADF is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the Southern Downs Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
