This exciting performance of Simon Barker’s Intersections is a new work developed with members of local writing groups, exploring the intersections between literature as the spoken word and music, and including a discussion between writers and musicians. The performance will take the audience on an exploratory journey to a world where music and words come together.
Presented with Campbelltown Arts Centre and supported by the University of Western Sydney.
