    More about…

    The magical tradition of storytelling, puppetry and live music will come to life in the next David Pereira Cello Series.

    Catherine Roach, a Canberra-based theatre director and puppeteer, will be joined by Cathy Petocz to create a new puppetry performance illustrating new works by Marian Budos and Ivana Troselj.

    The story of the ‘Little Mermaid’, a classic by Hans Christian Anderson, is the inspiration behind Ivana Troselj’s new work ‘On Broken Glass’. In her composition the cello adopts the voice of the little mermaid, struggling to be heard by her beloved.

    ‘The Three Sisters’, a new composition by award-winning composer Marian Budos follows the beloved Slovakian folktale, ‘Salt is More Precious than Gold’: A story of three princesses proving the extent of their love for their father.

    Both works will be narrated and are written especially for Alice Giles (harp), Niels Rosendahl (saxophone), Marian Budos (guitar) and David Pereira (cello).

    Other musical items on the program include an Australian premiere of a terrific duo for harp and cello by Kikta and improvisations for cello and saxophone.

    For those fond of a Sunday drive, ‘Once Upon a Time…’ will also be repeated at the Crisp Galleries Performance Space, at Bowning on Sunday 11th April at 2:00 pm. The Performance Space adjoins Peter Crisp’s glass studio and overlooks a beautiful garden that includes a formal avenue of trees and a waterfall.

    The concerts coincide with Hans Christian Anderson’s birthday celebrations; International Childrens’ Book Day; and National Youth Week (9-18 April). The project is also being promoted by the Childrens’ Book Council of Australia.
