A narrative jazz concert composed and conducted by saxophonist Jeremy Rose with his award-winning 17 piece Earshift Orchestra, featuring a new generation of Australian jazz talent.
Iron in the Blood is directly inspired by Robert Hughes’ The Fatal Shore, the vivid, best-selling history of Australia’s brutal convict era.
Narrated by acclaimed actors William Zappa and Patrick Dickson, the performance weaves together Hughes’ text with stunning projections, the documented voices of early colonists and a score praised for its eclecticism and boldness.
★★★★1/2 "Harrowing history told by a bold, emerging Aussie voice" – Limelight
★★★★ "Rose’s composition and orchestration here is reminiscent not only of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Gil Evans but, at times, of Igor Stravinsky and Peter Sculthorpe. It is a powerful mélange…" – The Australian Book Review
