Opening of The Library at the Dock 2014

Was my pleasure to tell stories at the opening of this gorgeous new library, 5 mins on the no 48 tram from Southern Cross Station.

Situated in Melbourne Docklands, a comfortable 3 story building with one of the highest green ratings in Australia. This library has everything!

Here I am telling stories from a set of tales I have been working on that I call Flyway.

The Yarra River didn't always do a clean right swing passed the city; rather it looped to the north and what we now call the Docklands was a swamp full of wildlife, especially birds. There would have been all sorts and many migratory birds - now there is food for thought (ie stories).

Storytelling Australia Victoria is working on a series of 6 storytelling shows titled Words on the Wind to be performed in this wonderful new venue. Curated by Anne E Stewart, 9 storytellers will explore, the location, history, environment ... of The Dock.

Details to come but in the meantime check out the lbrary HERE

And thank you to the Docklands News for allowing me to use this lovely photo.

Words on the Winds kicks of on July 24 with Jan Wositzky's show Buckley: The Go-between. check it out HERE.

Here's a little video I made at the opening. The Jindi Woraback Dance Group. Enjoy!
