Camerata – When the World Was Wide

Concert or Performance

28 Nov 2019

Tama Matheson – writer and actor
Artists from Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts

What to expect:
Not quite a concert, not quite a play, When The World Was Wide is a melding of narrative, acting and concert music. It digs deep into the life and sparring friendship of two of Australia’s most iconic poets and writers, Henry Lawson and Banjo Paterson, drawing on atmospheric and evocative music to set the scene. When The World Was Wide is the fifth collaboration between Camerata and Tama Matheson. Audiences and critics continue to praise these adventurous artistic collaborations.

This was engaging and significant, an enjoyable event brokered by the productive, no frills alliance between music and theatre, where each art form was fully realised yet supportive of each other. Such success in the vexed terrain of interdisciplinary venture is rare. (Limelight Magazine on the 2017 smash hit, The White Mouse).
