As part of this years Fremantle Festival, Nicholas Allbrook brings together a cast of illustrious raconteurs in this musical tribute to Fremantle’s storied underbelly. Evoking the untamed and sometimes seedy origins of the Port City, Songs Of Disgrace – presented in two acts – will traverse both the sublime and ridiculous through song, visuals and spoken word: a fitting salvo to what Allbrook describes as: “a place on the edge of the world, blessed and forsaken by solitude.”
Featuring an eclectic orchestra of reprobates – amongst them, sweet pal Peter Bibby – Songs Of Disgrace pays homage to the maligned souls of yesterday and today: a disparate global cast that has decorated the city and its streets, docks, footy fields, prisons, asylums and bars. More a blurred vision skirting between memory and fantasy than a gospel retelling of history, Songs Of Disgrace is a half-remembered dream as crude and curious and strangely beautiful as Walyalup itself, the port city of Fremantle.
