A beautiful amalgam of the spoken word of A.B ‘Banjo’ Paterson’s famous verse, the music of COLDPLAY and stunning contemporary dance.
“THE ENTIRE PERFORMANCE IS POETRY” – Joanna Silver
BANJO brilliantly intertwines the life events of Banjo Paterson through beautiful new arrangements of COLDPLAY’s greatest hits, contemporary dance and his very own verse.
“WORLD CLASS. THE FUSION OF CONTEMPORARY DANCE, AUSTRALIAN ICONIC POETRY AND MODERN MUSIC IS A TRULY UNIQUE EXPERIENCE.” – Dale Carr
Paterson’s beautiful verse – Clancy of the Overflow, As Long As Your Eyes Are Blue, Waltzing Matilda & The Man From Snowy River will blend with Clocks, Yellow, Fix You, Paradise, Viva La Vida and more.
Proudly built and shared first on Biripai Country in 2018.
