A letter by Steaphan Paton to
a Neo-Colonialist Culture Stealer.
Read it all here.
Lucy Dash and Theresa Dixon (two thirds of The Little Sisters) shined up on the plinth.
They played what they liked to hear.
And what they’ve written for the world.
We liked this little number best.
It is so nice to hear brunswick bands up on the plinth.
We wish we could make this happen all the time!
Keep an eye on The Little Sisters next gig via facebook.
On Wednesday evening the “The Coburg Trolls” sang.
They assembled themselves on the plinth.
All 20 of them or so.
The songs they sang were African protest songs.
About fighting for justice,
About thinking before you speak
And finally a lullaby for a passing baby.
If only all choirs rehearsed ALL the time in public space….
Dailoli was nervous.
He’d had one of those really tough days at school.
Still. He climbed on the plinth.
And had one very short and precise statement to make:
Daioli is Australian and East Timorese.
His mum, Rocky, has a show coming up in Melbourne Fringe about Peace Keeping East Timor called In the interest of Peace.
It’s going to be quite special.
