The Boy Castaways
Directed by Michael Kantor The Boy Castaways is a haunting ode to the precarious magic of the stage and the visceral power of music. Featuring some of Australia’s brightest lights of theatre, music and film including Paul Capsis, Tim Rogers, Megan Washington and Mark Leonard Winter (Thyestes), Kantor’s film poses the question: what happens when the stage becomes your world? In pursuit of the answer, four men are drawn into a metaphysical thriller, a grand cabaret of the soul.

Michael Kantor, Paul Capsis and Megan Washington will be in attendance and participate in a post-screening Q&A hosted by ABC Head of Arts Katrina Sedgwick.

Internationally acclaimed soprano Jane Sheldon joins Sydney Chamber Opera to perform a transcendentally haunting monodrama, Exil directed by Belvoir’s new Resident Director Adena Jacobs. Contemporary Georgian composer Giya Kancheli originally conceived his 1994 song cycle as a concert work, not for the stage. A setting of Biblical Psalms alongside post-Holocaust poetry by Paul Celan and Hans Sahl, it is an abstract twentieth-century drama of the soul in the face of unspeakable horror.
