Looping With Latitude
Supporting Luke Batty Foundation
For the first time, the dynamic musical wizard Adam Page and sassy Women with Latitude get together for Looping with Latitude in a funky fundraiser for the Never Alone/Luke Batty Foundation. Rosie Batty will join us via clever technology for brief chat and loop.
Armed with little more than a saxophone, a loop pedal, a key board, a couple of microphones and a wicked sense of humour, Adam will improvise an entire set (he’s a master of a musical device known as ‘looping’) using sounds from the choir, Rosie and the audience to produce sizzling musical magic. You will be blown away by his extraordinary musical talent.
“It is a rare treat to see a musician with such a masterful grasp of his craft performing with such effortless charisma, humour, and inventiveness. I was blown away. There’s no one doing it quite like him”. - Tim Minchin.
”Adam Page is a musical wizard… (He) provides a feel good hour of entertainment that would please just about every musical taste...” - one4review.com (Edinburgh Fringe 2008) ****
”ASTONISHING!” - Billy Connolly
Women With Latitude have been making music together for nearly 20 years. Highlights of their musical life include backing Dr G Yunupingu to a sell-out crowd in his Gospel Songs Tour at the Festival Theatre in 2015; appearing in the State Theatre Company production of The Events in 2016; being state finalists in the ABC Classic FM Choir of the Year competition and two guest performances at the Bundaleer Forest Music Festival. They are repeat offenders at the Adelaide Fringe with a performance at Mary Mag’s in 2014 and shows with the Dark Knights of Song (WA men’s singing sensation aka Spooky Men of the West) in 2014 and 2015 and The Ballpoint Penguins (also from WA) in 2017. If you listen carefully, their voices can also be heard during the closing credits of the award-winning Australian film, Girl Asleep.
“… Women With Latitude bounced on stage bringing their joy and absolute delight in community singing. This 30-strong a Cappella voice ensemble are joyous and fun, and we almost want to sing along to Mr Sandman (The Chordettes) and Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen).” - Karen Bailey & Brendan De Michele, The Clothesline
The choir has used its performances to provide support for refugees in Australia, the Aandhimul Project in Nepal and AIDS support workers in South Africa.
On this occasion, the performers are showing their support for the Luke Batty Foundation www.lukebattyfoundation.org.au . Luke was murdered by his father in 2014 and in 2015 Luke’s mother Rosie Batty established the Foundation to advocate for victims of family violence.
Rosie was named Australian of the Year in 2015 for her inspiring work.
The Foundation continues to campaign for genuine change within our society for prevention of violence by encouraging public conversation around the issue of domestic violence.
Come along and help give voice to women and children experiencing violence, to ensure they are recognised, respected and heard.
Limited tables available for lunch before the show.
