Heritage in the Limelight Workshop performance, September 2017

This is a recording of a magic lantern show performed at the conclusion of the Heritage in the Limelight project's workshop in September 2017. The performance was done with a pair of Steward Dissolving View Lanterns from the 1880s. The show was a melange, combining sets of historic commercial slides with slides made by contemporary artsits at the ANU School of Art and Design working off nineteenth century glass. Lanternists: Martyn Jolly and Elisa deCourcy. Music by Canberra Experimental Music Ensemble. Singer and narrator: Georgia Pike. Readers: Paul Pickering (White Slaves of England) and Nicolas Peterson (Australian Missionary material).
