The Lost Story of an African Australian is a true story of breathtaking scope that follows a family’s journey across several centuries, from First Peoples genocide and the transatlantic slave trade to flight and freedom in a new land, punctuated by some of the most significant conflicts in human history. It is also the story of race, identity and the whitewashing of Black and Indigenous history.
Limited Edition Book
During an artist residency in Paris in 2013, Archibald-winning artist Nicholas Harding drew actors as they awaited their stage entrances in a pop-up theatre adjacent to his studio. His friend, Hugo Weaving saw them and invited Nicholas to draw rehearsals for STC’s production of Waiting for Godot later in the year. Since then Nicholas has drawn during rehearsals and some performances for 15 productions by various Sydney theatre companies.
Selections of these sketches and the sketchbooks themselves were the subject of a MAG&M exhibition in 2020. Harding has also drawn some of Australia’s most renowned theatre directors and production creatives. These artworks are now a vibrant legacy of the STC’s recent productions.
From the Wings is a limited edition (500 copies), 312 page book containing a selection of drawings from 11 of these productions, in which actors such as John Bell, Hugo Weaving, Cate Blanchett, Richard Roxburgh and Geraldine Hakewill perform plays by Beckett, Shakespeare, Brecht, Kirkwood, Whittet, Chekov and others. Productions include STC’s Waiting for Godot, Macbeth, Cyrano de Bergerac, Endgame, The Present, Chimerica, The Father and The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui.
Each book is signed and numbered by the artist and includes a Foreword written by Hugo Weaving along with quotes from actors, directors and others involved with staging these productions.
Hand made and hand painted, each one is unique.
