Every event at Brisbane Writers Festival is special, but some are truly one of a kind. Okay, so Twilight in the Red Box takes place on both Friday and Saturday, however it's still something you won't see elsewhere (even if you can see it at BWF twice).
Think of this as a conceptual event, an intersection of words and sounds in a filmic atmosphere in an electronic/contemporary classical music kind of way. We tried. Local composers Ben Heim and Connor D'Netto (AKA contemporary classical/electric duo Argo) have composed the music. Best-selling sci-fi book Illuminae provides the inspiration. When the two combine, expect an explosion of sound — and if that's not exciting enough, this type of session is actually a festival first.
This event is one of our five picks for Brisbane Writers Festival. Check out the whole list.
