A Sinkless Shore

A Sinkless Shore

Pay What You Choose

13 - 15 Sep | 1 hour 107 Redfern - The Performance Space

With courage and sincerity, experimental vocalist-songwriter and accordionist Melanie Eden intimately explores landscapes of madness to transform suffering into the divine.

Inspired by Leonard Cohen's lyric; "There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in” comes a bold and fragile showing of an unreleased album. Eden, a local trans-disciplinary artist, survivor of violence, advocate of difference, dances along a high-wire of madness, beauty and curiosity for as long as the audience permits. She sings to the rights of the child, communities of care, and freedom from harm. Join her spiritual ecological cry of song, story and moving image.
