M~M Gathering of the City: Geelong Connected Communities

At the midpoint of the Mountain to Mouth 2016, dancers will emerge from the darkness at Steampacket Gardens, as Canoe and its entourage of flag bearers and walkers arrive from their journey from the You Yangs. Weaving like threads through the central artwork, the dancers, made up of groups from across Geelong, gather the people of the city together. It's time to get up and dance.

For over 25 years, a locked wooden dresser sat in the family garage of broadcaster, Joel Carnegie - a once prized possession of his grandfather, Col Brain. Col was one of Geelong's most well-regarded musicians of his time - playing in and leading dance, swing, brass and jazz bands. But Col's dresser hadn’t been opened since he died. So what was inside?

Told through the eyes of his grandson, in a collaboration with the Geelong West Brass Band: herein lies the discovery of a time capsule of Australian musical life, in a quest to uncover what Col wanted us to know about his life, by the things he left behind...

This radio cabaret project will be recorded for broadcast on ABC Radio National.

3 performances: 6:30pm, 7:30pm and 9pm (show running time approx 28 minutes).
