Hosted by Maria Angelico, this stunning episode features Esther Hannaford, Alice Topp, and dancers Adam Bull and Deborah Brown.
Esther Hannaford is a multi-award-winning stage and screen actor, where recent credits include Carole King in Beautiful: The Musical, Audrey in The Little Shop of Horrors, and the recent ABC series Retrograde.
Deborah Brown spent 15 years with Bangarra Dance Theatre as Senior Artist and Choreographer, and is currently working as Assistant Director on Sydney Theatre Company’s production of Wonnangatta.
Adam Bull has had a phenomenal almost-20-year career dancing with The Australian Ballet. As Principal Dancer, he has represented the company around Australia and all over the world, as one of our country’s greatest male dancers.
Alice Topp recently retired after 14 years as a dancer with The Australian Ballet, moving into her appointment as Resident Choreographer with the company – the first female Resident Choreographer in 15 years and only the second in its history.
These four artists have joined creative forces on an original all-vocal piece written and performed by Esther Hannaford especially for Sound Mind. They’ve collaborated remotely online from different parts of the country – Esther and Alice have been in lockdown in Melbourne, Deborah is in Sydney and Adam has been on a working road trip in northern NSW – with additional music input from Steve Toulmin, based in the Blue Mountains.
