Program 28-23 Arts Friday on Eastside

Symbols matter. The tension between what is and what is not is there in the great novels and paintings: harshness and beauty. Italian Sydney based artist, Simone Piccioni’s latest exhibition, The Australian AEffect challenges the balance between the act of creating art and transcends any superficial desire for beauty. We take a Gallery walk with Simone at Studio W. Remarkable new life is a flutter in the grand scale of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly at Macquaries Point. Opera Australia’s Revival Director, Susana Gómez was born in Oviedo (Spain) where she graduated in English Literature and Literary Theory. She trained as a pianist and actor and focused on physical theatre during some long-term stays in Germany and Argentina. She talks of the soaring emotions of the natural world and human relations of the contemporary interpretation.

Simone Piccioni interview music: Arcangelo Corelli, Concerto grosso, Op 6, No 1 in D Major: I. Largo – Allegro. Courtesy of Kylie Sargant.

Produced and presented by Angela Stretch, the program participants acknowledge the custodians of the Gadigal lands from which the program has been produced and broadcasts from at Eastside Radio.
