We’re past mid-year and things are on the move. Robyn is currently preparing for her Dancing on the Volcano concert at City Recital Hall, after which she is going into the studio with Michael Morley ( Piano) and George Butrumlis ( accordion) to record for the first time in many years. They will be recording repertoire from the current French and German recital programs and these will become available later in the year , under the title of Robyn Archer: Classic European Cabaret Songs. None of these songs have been recorded by Robyn before, and many of them have never been recorded in these English translations. The intention is that this new album will launch the availability of her complete newly-digitised back catalogue.
Robyn , as the 2018 dedicatee, gave the opening keynote for the Adelaide Festival of Ideas in July. This address will appear on this website soon.
In the meantime, Robyn continues her role as Chair of HOTA: Home of the Arts ( Gold Coast) where the Outdoor Stage is now up and running, and the dig for the new $60 million gallery will begin by the end of the year. Artist in Residence there in June was the great Laurie Anderson.
Robyn also continues as Chair of the Master of Fine Arts in Cultural Leadership at NIDA. This course is producing the next generation of cultural leaders - applications for the 2019 intake are now open.
There are hints of varied activity in Adelaide next year , so watch this space !
