Brisbane-based music ensemble Topology is celebrating 25 years of performing around Queensland with a new show which is coming to Blackbutt on Friday night.
They describe “Queensland Stories” as a live music experience combining film, photography and storytelling, documenting the people, landscapes and stories that make up Queensland.
Earlier this year the group brought the show to communities in Goondiwindi, the North Burnett and Southern Downs regions.
“Queensland stories presents a real life look at life as a rural Queenslander,” creative director Christa Powell said.
“After visiting over 200 communities in the past 25 years there has been some amazing new works created. These works help people tell their stories.
“It is about highlighting the challenges, opportunities, setbacks and victories that arise from living in regional Queensland.
“It is about how communities manage through drought, natural disasters and a world-wide pandemic.”
The work features music compositions by students from around the State.
“Queensland Stories” will be performed at the Blackbutt Memorial Hall in Bowman Road, Blackbutt at 7:00pm.
