THE SONG OF SOLOMON: Mark Bradshaw and Ben Whishaw

http://ausnzfestival.com/event/the-song-of-solomon/

Sydney-born composer and musician Mark Bradshaw has written scores for theatre, television and film, most recently Jane Campion’s Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning TV series Top of the Lake (2013) and Resistance (2011). Previous collaborations with Campion include The Water Diary (2006), The Lady Bug (2007) and the Oscar-nominated film Bright Star (2009).

In an exclusive event that will close the 2014 Aus & NZ Festival, Bradshaw and a small ensemble of musicians will be performing a composition inspired by the biblical poem The Song of Solomon, read by the highly acclaimed BAFTA award-winning actor Ben Whishaw.

A DOUBLE SPRING: Juliet Darling and Ben Whishaw, Rebecca Swift
Sunday June 1, 10am, King’s College London
http://ausnzfestival.com/event/a-double-spring/

“Nick died in the southern hemisphere in spring. Now I am in Paris in spring. We were to have been here together. I am experiencing a double spring. Double the bitterness, double the beauty”.

In 2009, film-maker, writer and artist Juliet Darling, lost her partner, the well-known art curator Nick Waterlow in a frenzied knife attack at the hands of his schizophrenic son. Through her memoir A Double Spring, Darling exposes the pain and helplessness of loss, but something else as well: her memoir becomes a moving tribute to the power of art and love to sustain us through the darkest moments in life.

Joining Juliet is BAFTA and Emmy-winning actor Ben Whishaw who offers his response to the book and reflects on its universal message of hope. The event is chaired by author, editor and Director of The Literary Consultancy, Rebecca Swift.
