Silent Spring Revisited – Rachel Carson’s fight for nature

Rachel Carson has been in Jan Bolwell’s life since
she was nine years old. Her conservationist grandmother introduced
her to Carson’s famous book Silent Spring, that exposed the dangers
of the chemical pesticide DDT. Jan revisits this book through adult eyes,
as she plays Rachel Carson in her fight for nature.

An exciting creative team has worked collaboratively on this work –
director Annie Ruth, composer Jan Bolton and lighting designer Helen Todd.


This pilot project explores ways in which artists might build community
within some of the city’s shared suburban buildings.

Good Habits – Farewell Tour

21st August from 5pm, @ Vogelmorn Hall

Good Habits are a UK alt-folk duo, telling stories and turning heads across the globe. 

Composed of singer-cellist Bonnie Schwarz and accordionist Pete Shaw, the duo create folk-infused music that test the limits of their traditional instruments, maintaining folk roots of musical storytelling amongst their energetic, virtuosic playing. Their songs tell stories of their adventures, blending trad folk with a warm yet quirky jazz-indie influence.

Good Habits’ Bonnie and Pete found themselves ‘happily stranded’ in New Zealand during Covid-19. 

As the lucky English musos who got to continue playing, they filled their year since with music and adventure. The duo will return to the UK in October, and so are setting off on their biggest tour yet, to sing their dearest thank yous and fondest goodbyes (for now).

Tickets $20 or $25 on the door
