London’s all-Australian chamber orchestra, Ruthless Jabiru, and guest artist Lara St. John perform a concert tribute to the complex history of the Maralinga land in remote South Australia. Maralinga was chosen as a site for undercover British nuclear testing in the 1950s and 60s, leaving the area heavy with radioactive waste and thousands of Indigenous people and servicemen affected, both British and Australian. A musical programme by Matthew Hindson, Paul Stanhope, Linda Buckley, Arvo Pärt and Samuel Barber evokes the loss and the chemical strangeness which has become integral to the Maralinga landscape.

Monday 14 October, 7:30pm

  1. Thanks very much for extending my invitation to your followers. A number of the orchestra members for this performance by Ruthless Jabiru are also Tait Trust past awardees who are now working in the UK’s major orchestras. It would be great to have the support of your Committee and Friends at the Union Chapel on 14 October.
