Did you know the Fremantle Prison once had an active theatre? Neither did we! So, please join us in rediscovering the musical legacy of the Fremantle Prison's Crown Theatre on 27 May 2017 for a student and family-friendly concert and on 4 June 2017 for an evening concert.
These interactive concerts will feature discoveries made by an interdisciplinary team, including Historian Dr Jeremy Martens, Archaeologist Dr Martin Porr, Architect Dr Tijana Vujosevic, Musicians Dr Georg Corall and Patricia Alessi, Conservation and Preservation Specialist Christine Porr and PhD Architecture Scholar Jennifer Scott, with heritage analyses by TPG + Place Match (Nerida Moredoundt, Principal Heritage Architect and Flavia Kiperman, Associate) and acoustical analyses by Herring Storer Acoustics.
These discoveries will be musically presented by the New Holland Consort (formerly Perth Baroque), via a new composition by Dr Georg Corall and Ms Patricia Alessi. We look forward to exploring this fascinating theatre's musical history and creating a bit of our own!
Support provided by: The Fremantle Prison, The Fremantle Heritage Festival, New Holland Consort, The University of Western Australia (Research Impact Grant) and the Paul Iles Bequest (The Society for Theatre Research, UK).
