Flight Memory

Concert or Performance

14 Nov 2019 to 27 Apr 2020

A Narrative Song Cycle about Australian Genius

By Sandra France (From a Black Sky) and Alana Valentine (Barbara and the Camp Dogs, Letters to Lindy, Cold Light)

A mesmerising series of songs. A spellbinding portrait of scientific endeavour. A homage to invention in our country that will inspire and challenge the belief ‘everything good gets invented somewhere else’ .

This compelling story of visionary Australian scientist David Warren and the invention that transformed technological and aeronautical history explores the core human emotions behind the world-changing Black Box Flight Recorder. Feel the pain of parochialism, the unconscious grind of childhood grief, and the elation of hard-won success.

Completing our 2019 year, this specially commissioned world premiere is a sensory feast of live music, theatre and visual design taking us from blues, Broadway jazz, funk, and Latin to minimalism, free improvisation and beyond. Mind-expanding live performance mixing up musical styles as Flight Memory examines how Australia treats its scientists and asks can we live out the absolute bounds of our potential as a nation?
