Keynote Event: Shaun Tan's The Arrival
|Melbourne Recital Centre - CODE 1180|
The inventive graphic stories of internationally renowned local illustrator Shaun Tan have already migrated from page to screen, with the Oscar-winning film The Lost Thing. Now, Tan's much-loved The Arrival - following the melancholic yet hopeful adventures of a refugee in a strange world - has been brought to life in music by Sydney composer and musician Ben Walsh. An amazing live 'sonic-scape', performed by the multi-instrumental Orkestra of the Underground, accompanies projections of Tan's exquisite illustrations. Tan will introduce this performance via video. This remarkable collaboration makes its Victorian premiere as part of the Melbourne Writers Festival.
Proudly supported by the Melbourne Recital Centre and the Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas
