The Singing Politician

About

Topology and The Australian Voices

Powerful words and musical brilliance collide in this outstanding performance piece about famous speeches that have shaped our nation. The Singing Politician takes the words right out of our Prime Ministers’ mouths – from Menzies’ ‘Melancholy Duty’, Whitlam’s ‘Well May We Say’, Gillard’s Misogyny Speech to Abbott’s ‘A Stain on Our Soul’ – and marries them seamlessly to an overlay of stirring music and choral work. Performed by Topology and The Australian Voices this is a cultural narrative like you’ve never heard before. Composed by Topology’s masterminds Robert Davidson and John Babbage, plus musical powerhouse Gordon Hamilton, the collection also features iconic speeches from Bob Hawke to Paul Keating, Billy Hughes to Kevin Rudd, Malcolm Fraser to John Howard. This amazing piece will be performed in the equally amazing Nolan Gallery at MONA. Not to be missed.
