The Timekeeper’s Opus

Time's wry face smiles.

‘The Bard of Brisbane’ was gaining accolades as a songwriter long before he turned his hand to playwrighting.

In this stunning retrospective the artists of Pentimento Productions bring to life a kaleidoscope of over thirty songs from Sven Swenson’s acclaimed Sundial Plays. Stylistically tracing the evolution of popular music genres from the dawn of the twentieth century to present day, The Timekeeper’s Opus embraces influences from gospel to 1930’s patter-songs, 50’s B-bop, Rap, Jazz, Tango and Aus-rock, to timeless love ballads.

The Timekeeper’s Opus includes songs from both produced and yet-to-be staged works from The Sundial Plays, including, The Truth About Kookaburras, Road to the She-Devils Salon, The Sirens Kiss, Wiredancers Waltz, Raconteurs and Balladeers, Heavenly Bodies, Beautiful Souls, Under The God Tree, Daredevil’s Moon, Angel Gear, Dangerfield Park, and Tiptoe.

Featuring musical collaborations with John Rodgers, Susan Hawkins, Peter Crees, Phil Slade, Wil Hughes and Colin Weber.

It’s a performance-party, where the sound track is a collection of kick-arse original music.

Patrons are advised this performance contains no nudity whatsoever.
