Indignados! brings together two well-known Tasmanian artists, Pete Hay and Paul Gerard, who will take you on a surprising voyage to Spain. This show combines poetry and the thrilling sounds of Spanish guitar, and will immerse you in in the passion and excitement of Madrid during a period of civil unrest.
Pete’s poetry evokes not only the landscapes, politics and people of Spain, but a very Australian experience of moving through Europe with an eye tuned to injustice and absurdity.
Pete’s poetry is accompanied by a major new Spanish guitar composition by Paul, who spent eight years studying professional Spanish guitar with Fernando da Costa and has been a professional musician and composer for more than 30 years.
Indignados! taps into the wellspring of Spanish tradition and celebrates the colour and exhilaration of Madrid during a time when thousands gathered to express a desire to resist globalisation.
Indignados! is a sequel to the very popular Evening in Andalusia, but a stand-alone show, based on a different sequence of poems from Pete’s collection, Girl Reading Lorca. Join us for this exceptional night of music and poetry!
