Adelaide Festival

Nagapa William Cooper

"Nigel Westlake and Lior unite again for Ngapa William Cooper, a moving new piece composed and written by Westlake and Lior with creative input by Dr Lou Bennett AM and Sarah Gory. The work focusses on the story of revered Yorta Yorta Elder William Cooper, an early activist for First Nations’ rights and leader of a protest against Nazi atrocities. Vocalists Lior and Lou Bennett are joined by the Australian String Quartet, Kees Boersma, Rebecca Lagos and Andrea Lam to perform this much-anticipated world premiere."

Adelaide Fringe

Run, by Stephen Laughton

"Yonni is a seventeen-year-old gay Jewish kid. His devoutly religious family is preparing for the weekly shabbat, but he can think only about his schoolmate, Adam, with whom he is infatuated. 

As the evening’s events unfold - some of them real, some of them imagined - a deeply personal story about first love and infatuation expands to interrogate the difficult intersection of religion and queerness and what it means to love, to lose, to rebel and to grieve."
