Joseph O’Farrell (JOF) - We Are Lightning!

Arts : State of the Art  for Wednesday 29 November 2017, 8:30am

Joseph O’Farrell joins The Breakfast Spread to chat about We Are Lightning! at the North Melbourne Town Hall.

Joseph O’Farrell (The Suitcase Royale) and the UK’s Sam Halmarack (Festival of Live Art, 2014) combine theatre with the fist-pumping euphoria and power ballads of a stadium gig, in WE ARE LIGHTNING!, a darkly comical work that reflects on the importance of communal spaces where people can come together and express themselves.

North Melbourne Town Hall is transformed into a music venue on the brink of closure. A teen band, a community choir and ageing rockers join JOF’s drums and Sam’s guitar to mark and protest its demise, leading audiences through a strange ceremony and heartfelt celebration of how music shapes the lives of the people that play it.

Tune in to The Breakfast Spread at 8:30 on Wednesday 29th November!
