Picaresque is Robyn's new exhibition and performance for this years Adelaide Festival. It opens March 8 and there are ten performances inside around 200 miniature architectural maquettes from around the world. Robyn has been collecting these ever since she made her first overseas trip – to perform at London’s National Theatre in 1977. Book for the show through the Adelaide Festival
Currently a superb army of design students and volunteers are constructing these intricate models, while Robyn assembles an avenue of her travel ephemera, while rehearsing from time to time with George Butrumlis, the accordionist who accompanies her on this journey.
Robyn’s new CD, the first since Keep Up Your Standards with Paul Grabowsky, will be launched during the Adelaide Festival and will be available on the Undercover label of Rouseabout Records. Robyn Archer: Classic Cabaret Rarities features rarely recorded French and German songs, and most will never have been recorded in these translations by Robyn and pianist Michael Morley. George Butrumlis also features throughout the recordings. Anyone who has seen the trio’s cabaret shows Que Reste-t’il? and Dancing on the Volcano will want this new CD.
The launch will coincide with the March 11 Festival Long Lunch which Robyn is co-hosting with Maggie Beer. Robyn is also looking forward to a long interview with David Marr on March 14 as part of the Festival talk series.
Immediately after the last show March 17, Robyn will be packing her bags and heading to Malta where she is again a mentor for the European Festivals Association Atelier.
2019 has started in ultra high energy mode.
Bookings are open for The Fortunes of Exile, Robyn’s concert with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra in August 2019. Book through the ASO website.
