Event Details

This concert moves between two spaces at the Abbotsford Convent, from the Good Shepherd Chapel to the main performance auditorium. Martin Friedel's UNDERWORLD SONGS draw on sources such as The Argus, the Police Gazette and other publications since the 1920s, from his period as Creative Fellow at the State Library of Victoria.

"Before the modern Babel of the internet, lives outside the circles of wealth and power went undocumented and unnoticed beyond family and neighbourhood. When such an ordinary life did go wrong through crime or misfortune, an unnoticed existence became visible and, for a short time, took a clear and sharply defined shape...It could be a short ride from misdeed to myth..."(Martin Friedel)
