Diane Wolkstein and Jeff Greene: Journey to the West

The National Gallery of Victoria was the coolest place to be on Sunday January 30 as temperatures soured in Melbourne to 40 degrees. No doubt it was even hotter in the city with heat radiating from the pavement!

Members of the Vic Guild and guests from South Australia and Tasmania gathered in the Great Hall to hear Diane Wolkstein accompanied by Jeff Greene, tell the story of Monkey King: Journey to the West. With Jeff's poetic and evocative soundscape, Diane transported us to magical and timeless places. A storyteller at the height of her skills, Diane's love of language, integration of movement and powerfully expressive voice all contribute to a spellbinding performance.

The Australian storytellers joined Jeff and Diane for afternoon tea in the gallery cafe. January has been a rich month of story and it has been our pleasure to host our interstate and OS guests.
