Skip Miller's Hit Songs

Skip Miller's Hit Songs

WORLD PREMIERE
SKIP MILLER'S HIT SONGS
BY SEAN RILEY

Adelaide Fringe award

Winner of the John Chataway Digital Technology Award - Adelaide Fringe 2011

Skip Miller doesn't take pretty pictures but he collects good music. A celebrated frontline photojournalist, he has spent years documenting the war zones of Africa and the faces of the dispossessed. A homeless wanderer amidst millions, Skip is on an endless search for the next assignment - the next best shot.

Meanwhile in a refugee camp, Basil Mgembe searches for his missing family and, in Australia, the newly arrived Patience Lugor comes face to face with her own image on bus shelters and billboards, in newspapers and magazines.

This multi-narrative ensemble work for African and Australian actors and musicians is an intimate, honest and open-hearted exploration of lives caught between two worlds.

Season 16 Feb - 5 Mar (previews from 12 Feb) 2011
Venue Odeon Theatre, Norwood
Times Mon-Sat 7.30pm, Sat matinee 2.30pm
