The EU Centre for Global Affairs brings the Shadow Players’ performance of The Waste Land to Adelaide
The Shadow Players present:
The Waste Land
by T.S. Eliot
“Julian Lamb and David Pereira bring clarity to ‘The Waste Land'”
“An utterly inspiring performance”
The RiotAct, Canberra
The Waste Land is the most influential poem of the twentieth century. Eliot’s haunting vision of a spiritually barren post-war Europe is brought to life in a performance which draws out the poem’s vast array of characters as well as its rich lyrical language. Performances of The Waste Land are rare since it is often regarded as too difficult to perform. A performance of The Waste Land with live musical accompaniment is almost unprecedented.
Internationally renowned cellist David Pereira teams up with actor and Chinese University of Hong Kong Professor Julian Lamb to bring you a fusion of music and spoken work which will appeal to aficionados of the poem as well as those who have never encountered it. The music will feature passages of improvisation, original composition, and direct quotations from the work of some of the most important composers of the twentieth century including European composers Sibelius and Schoenburg.
