The Singing Politician
The Singing Politician takes the words right out of our Prime Ministers’ mouths –from Menzies’ ‘Declaration of War’ to Whitlam’s ‘Well May We Say’; Abbott’s ‘A Stain on Our Souls’ to Gillard’s ‘Misogyny’ speech –marrying them seamlessly to an overlay of stirring music and choral work.
There might even be a surprise appearance from Donald Trump. Two great Brisbane outfits, Topology and The Australian Voices, bring together powerful vocals and musical brilliance to remake these pivotal speeches as you’ve never heard them before.
Composed by: Robert Davidson, John Babbage and Gordon Hamilton.
Topology is supported by the Commonwealth Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and Tim Fairfax Family Foundation. Topology also gratefully acknowledges the support of Boyd's The Piano Shop and Simmers Violins.
