VENUE: His Majesty’s Theatre, On the Boards at His Maj
In this never-to-be-repeated performance, exclusively created for the festival, award-winning cabaret artists Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse invite you for a night of cabaret Karaoke with a Noongar twist!
Featuring new takes on old classics, audience favourites and a couple of guilty pleasures, Songs from the Noongaroke Lounge celebrates the songs we love and the feelings that transcend language. Not confident you can sing along in Noongar? Don’t worry – Gina has mastered the art of sharing her wisdom and her joy of keeping this ancient local language living and breathing, and will have you joining in before you know it!
Because it’s never, ever about what separates us.
“Songs in Noongar language transposed into English, and vice-versa show that Williams is a transcendent artist in any language, and her friend and collaborator Guy Ghouse’s generous, serene presence and fingerstyle acoustic guitar playing (often reminiscent of James Taylor, with the thumb taking the place of a pianists left hand) is a show in itself.” — David Zampatti, Turnstiles
“Gina Williams & Guy Ghouse are stunning artists whose music is a celebration of life, community and a shared humanity.” — Caroline Moore, Artistic Director, 2020 Port Fairy Folk Festival
