Melbourne Playback – Solstice Public Season Shows

“To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.

To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,

and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings, and is travelled by dark feet and dark wings.”

Wendell Berry


Come. Join Melbourne Playback for our Community Winter Solstice Show.

Come into the dark without a light, share stories of shadow and snuggling and soup and starlight.

Tell us how you get through the long deep dark and what you are looking forward to

when we re-emerge
