Serious and Usher Hall present
The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains
Illustrations: Eddie Campbell Music: FourPlay String Quartet
Sunday 6 July | 7.30pm
In a revolutionary new concept of synchronised multi-media storytelling,
Neil Gaiman will read aloud his story The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains. The renowned artist Eddie Campbell (best-known for his illustrations to Alan Moore's From Hell) has illustrated the story and the FourPlay String Quartet have created an entirely new underscore to the piece, which they play live. Then Hayley Campbell, author of the forthcoming book The Art of Neil Gaiman, will be interviewing Neil and FourPlay on stage.
Created for Sydney's renowned Graphic festival, The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains is a haunting tale of adventure, revenge and treasure, told as a hybrid between a storyteller, an artist and an Australian string quartet.
It is playing five performances only - Carnegie Hall in New York, the Warfield in San Francisco, two sold-out shows at London's Barbican, all leading up to this very special night at Usher Hall.
'It was simply amazing – more than just a reading, it was a performance full of subtlety and nuance. Gaiman kept 2000 people on the edge of their seat' STSOOI blog
On 17 June 2014, Headline Publishing Group will publish a four-colour, enhanced edition of The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains, beautifully illustrated by Eddie Campbell.
Blackwell Booksellers will be selling the book after the event in the Cafe Bar.
