Edition Three

Friday, 1 May 2020

This week features music, movement and more. Beautiful harmonies, enduring songlines and the joy of dance.


THE BEAMISH BROTHER

The Beamish Brothers are very talented siblings who write and perform a unique blend of soul, funk and indie‑pop. Their most recent EP Brutalism attracted over 100,000 streams on Spotify. Join Ben and Jeremy Beamish for a one‑of‑a‑kind performance from their home in Toowoomba, introduced by QPAC Project Officer Eliza Heath.

 

FROM OUR ARCHIVE

Beneath the Concrete
Songlines are integral to Aboriginal cultural knowledge – preserved in art, story, song and dance. Fred Leone’s family come from the Garrawa, Waanyi and Butchella mobs. He shares a creation story from his grandmother’s side from K’Gari (Fraser Island) about how the land got its colour.

 

Everybody Moves
When The Royal Ballet visited Brisbane, choreographer Wayne McGregor made the case that dance makes the world happier because after all, everybody moves. An uplifting look at the power of movement and dance.

 

FROM OUR FRIENDS

Storytime with Aunty Nita
Morton Bay Libraries and author Anita Heiss are running Storytime online. Anita reads her favourite children’s books each Thursday at 10am and the videos are available to watch anytime.

 

ACO Homecasts
In Homecasts, the Australian Chamber Orchestra is featuring new recordings, live streamed performances, access to archival and never‑released footage, specially curated playlists, in‑depth interviews and more.

 

Meet the Stars of The Lion King
We look back at when we welcomed two very special kids from Queensland Children’s Hospital’s Juiced TV to QPAC to meet the stars of The Lion King and have a behind the scenes peek at the associated exhibition.
