Synopsis

Country Arts SA has partnered with Mandurah Performing Arts Centre to commission Circa to make this brand new work which will had its world premiere in regional South Australia.

Circa and Country Arts SA worked with communities in Cummins, Ceduna, Lameroo and Bordertown to unlock the stories and memories held within the keys of local pianos, in order to create a high quality work for intimate performance spaces. Daryl Wallis, pianist and sound designer for Circa & Tammy Hall and Louisa Norman from Country Arts SA’s Arts Programming team spent several weeks on the road meeting people in Ceduna, Cummins, Bordertown, Port Lincoln, Lameroo and other communities as part of the creative process for the show and were welcomed with traditional country hospitality into people’s homes to hear their stories about pianos, their love of music and to listen to their pianos which have been a part of family or community for generations. These conversations inspired the music and soundscape for the work you’ll see in the show. Reclaimed Pianos will travel to Mandurah, WA in 2017. This show wouldn’t have happened without the support and inspiration of each community. Making new work is always an adventure, we are so glad you could be here with us to share the journey.
