Boat of Dreams
by Mikelangelo and Undine Francesca
The uncharted life of love...
The love song is like a boat of dreams a craft to cross between worlds. But it is also a message sent that the beloved may never receive, a vessel of loneliness, discordance and longings. Boat of Dreams explores the uncharted life of love beyond the romantic ending, not blissful union but something more potent and mysterious, a compelling mix of passion and discontent, closeness and distance, adventure, hope, loss and strange satisfaction.
Mikelangelo is renowned for his profound yet humorous lyrics, idiosyncratic guitar and accordion style and astonishing baritone voice. He has toured arts and music festivals nationally and internationally to great acclaim with his group the Black Sea Gentlemen. Most recently the group toured New Zealand, Hungary and Scotland and were a five star hit at the 2005 Edinburgh Festival. Their new album Journey Through the Land of Shadows has had frequent air play on Radio National and the group has appeared as special guests on Philip Adams Late Night Live and also on the ABC TV Sunday Afternoon Arts Show. Performer, philosopher and writer Undine Francesca collaborated with Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen on their show Heart of the Black Sea at the Street Theatre in Canberra 2001.
Internationally acclaimed songwriter and performer Mikelangelo and writer, philosopher and performer Undine Francesca bring together elements of physical theatre, striking visual imagery, pantomime, puppetry, storytelling and song to create a show, which is hauntingly beautiful and delicately absurd.
