Camerata - When the World Was Wide

Featuring Tama Matheson – writer & actor, and artists from Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts.

Not quite a concert, not quite a play, When The World Was Wide is a melding of narrative, acting and concert music. It digs deep into the life and sparring friendship of two of Australia’s most iconic poets and writers, Henry Lawson and Banjo Paterson, drawing on atmospheric and evocative music to set the scene. When the World Was Wide is the fifth collaboration between Camerata and Tama Matheson. Audiences and critics continue to praise these adventurous, artistic collaborations.
