In June, the Australian Chamber Choir celebrates the life of Gagudju elder and poet Bill 'Kakadu Man' Neidjie. His dreaming poetry is central to a program that journeys through Australia's multicultural landscape. Kakadu Man will premiere in Macedon and Melbourne prior to 16 performances across Germany, Denmark and Switzerland. Bill Neidjie (1920-2002) was responsible for opening his native territory to the general public, inviting Australians and international guests to enjoy the natural beauty of the Kakadu National Park with its sacred ancient rock art sites. Neidjie broke taboos by publishing some of his people's traditional stories in two books of poetry and with that, ensured that the history and philosophy of his people were not forgotten. With permission from the poet's family, the Australian Chamber Choir has commissioned Tom Henry to set extracts from Neidjie's poems to music. These poems speak of a place where the spiritual world meets the physical. Known for his inspirational and technically demanding programs, Director Douglas Lawrence has fashioned a superb collection of works that will resonate with Australian and European audiences alike.
