Original music from Big hART’s critically acclaimed theatre show Namatjira
At its inception, the Namatjira project was a small idea to tell a big story – inspired by the life of internationally acclaimed Indigenous watercolour artist Albert Namatjira. The project evolved quickly from a celebration of his life, into an awakening of the living, breathing legacy he has left behind. From Ntaria (Hermannsburg) and Alice Springs, the project launched its work with Albert’s family and community of artists who continue to paint today. Now, after the historic return of the copyright to the Namatjira family, the project leaves a lasting legacy. This legacy was built through a community development process, an award winning theatrical work, contemporary watercolour exhibitions, on country trips, a feature length documentary, and this remarkable CD soundtrack.
This soundtrack includes the stunning work of artists Genevieve Lacey, Trevor Jamieson, Derik Lynch and the Ntaria Ladies Choir. Original music composed by Genevieve Lacey. Sound Design and engineering by Jim Atkins.
