Celebrating the essence of the local hall and its intrinsic involvement in its community Tweed Regional Gallery is hosting Tumbulgum and the Countdown to Midnight at the First Supper Between Now and Forever exhibition.
The photographic images on display were created as part of the If These Halls Could Talk project. Seven halls were selected out of the 120 nominated to participate in the multi arts project that worked with the hall and local community to uncover the secrets and local stories that surround them.
The Tumbulgum collaboration led to the live performance Tumbulgum and the Countdown to Midnight at the First Supper Between Now and Forever at the hall last December. Opera Queensland was commissioned by Arts Northern Rivers to tell the tale of Tumbulgum Hall and it transformed the 102-year-old building into an other-worldly place. Working with a cast of local performers, they created a musical journey that took audiences into the next world and ‘into forever’.
The exhibition of the extraordinary photographic images of the performance and its cast, will feature at Tweed Regional Gallery from 17 February to 21 May. Everyone is invited to attend an official opening by Opera Queensland Artistic Director Lindy Hume on Friday 3 March at 6pm for 6.30pm.
