Event Details

A musical narrative inspired by famous speeches

Prime-Ministerial speeches – set to music. Queensland’s Topology and The Australian Voices bring provocative text and exceptional musicianship together to create a musical narrative inspired by famous speeches delivered throughout Australian history.

Composed by Topology’s masterminds Robert Davidson and John Babbage, plus musical powerhouse Gordon Hamilton, the performance traverses pivotal moments that have shaped our nation. Unrepresentative Swill takes the words right out of our Prime Ministers’ mouths, including Menzies’ ‘Melancholy Duty’, Whitlam’s ‘Well May We Say’, Gillard’s Misogyny speech to Abbott’s ‘A Stain on Our Soul’.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and The Australian Voices
