Written in Chalk:
the echo of Arthur Stace
'Written in Chalk: the echo of Arthur Stace' relives the most spectacular New Year's Eve Fireworks Australia has ever hosted, and looks at how the final message of the celebrations, ETERNITY, continues to echo in Australia and around the world.
This next chapter of the ETERNITY story builds on the work of internationally renowned cultural and artistic legends Arthur Stace, Martin Sharp, Ignatius Jones, Ric Birch, Lawrence Johnston, Dion Beebe, Sir Jonathan Mills and many others.
ETERNITY is an endearing story which captures the imagination of people the world over; in theatre, music, street art, social activism, tertiary education, climate change, literature, hospitality, and in the everyday.
For some, ETERNITY is an iconic artwork. To others, it's about cultural expression and identity. And to others still, it provides a lens through which we can relive and understand Australia's recent history.
The cast includes Eddie McGuire (Channel 9 Millennium Fireworks TV Host), Ignatius Jones (Millennium Fireworks Creative Director), Ric Birch (Executive Creative Director, Sydney Olympic Games), Amylia Harris (Artistic Director, Darlinghurst Theatre Company), Sulari Gentill (Crime Fiction Writer), Joy Cooksey (Artist), Frank Sartor (former Sydney Lord Mayor), George Semaan (Eternity Café, Town Hall), Roy Williams and Elizabeth Meyers (co-authors, Mr Eternity, the biography of Arthur Stace), and many others.
