The Angel and the Beloved

October 5 – 16, 2011 at Hopetoun Alpha.
Monday and Tuesday 6.30pm,
Wednesday - Saturday 8pm,
Luminaries of NZ theatre Sylvia Rands and John Gibson celebrate work of Bohemian-Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke, at Hopetoun Alpha from October 5 – 16, 2011. Creating a new form of theatrical alchemy they use song, humour, live piano and any manner of styles to bring his work vividly to life .
John Gibson, pianist/composer and Sylvia Rands, actor/voice artistcelebrate the poet’s work as they explore the deep affinities between sound, music and words. Born out of Sylvia’s own highly respected vocal teaching and her passion for ‘finding the voice for what is important to say’ the performance uses Rilke’s words to tell the story of a maturing consciousness, the story of an everyman/woman.
