Tangent: Hydra - 8 April, 6pm
Sue Smith’s sweeping new drama Hydra tells the story of writers Jack Johnston (author of My Brother Jack) and Charmian Clift and their experiences creating a bohemian artist community on the Greek island of Hydra.
For our next Tangent, we’re exploring the myth of the tortured genius. Why are all of history’s greatest artists tormented? What are they tormented by and how does this influence the way we create art? On the panel will be director of Dark Mofo’s Festival of Dark and Dangerous Thoughts Laura Kroetsch and award-winning novelist Nicholas Jose.
Location: Bradley Forum, Level 5 of the Hawke Building on the City West campus, 50-55 North Terrace, Adelaide.
Time: Arrive at 5:30pm for light refreshments for a 6pm start. The talk will conclude at 7pm.
