Jackie Kerin and Sarah Depasquale: 'Tales from the Flyway' October 2015

My friend and collaborator Sarah Depasquale and I have some shows coming up.

Tales from the Flyway was developed out of a love for urban wetlands and birds, especially those found at our doorstep in Hobsons Bay. 

Together we will take you on a journey following the path of migratory shore birds, from south-east Australia to Siberia, along the East Asian Australasian Flyway. The show is playful and occasionally enlightening.

The structure of Tales from the Flyway is simple. If we were to fly with the birds and visit the chain of wetlands in the countries along the Flyway, what stories might we hear? I’ve collected stories from Indonesia, Thailand and Siberia and Sarah has woven them together with Vivaldi, Bach, Massenet and pieces she has composed especially.

Our final story is a kamishibai that has been passed down the Flyway from the Yatsu-Higata Observation Centre in Japan, to Boondall Wetlands in Brisbane (2008) and then on to us for telling in Hobsons Bay (2015). Receiving this story is a confirmation that there are people who see the big picture and don’t allow obstacles to get in the way of an idea.
