CHANGES: A Theatrical Tribute to the Music of David Bowie

“I have a series of enthusiasms which I have immersed myself in.

Ever since I was a kid, I always loved the new thing.”

Bare Naked Theatre presents CHANGES: A Theatrical Tribute to the Music of David Bowie and his chameleon-like genius at Gasworks Arts Park 27 July – 6 August. The power of Bowie's music affected everyone over five decades. The characters he created are immortal. His music videos intensified the emotion of his songs and everyone has their Bowie song. Now, for the first time, Bowie’s music will be reimagined through the power of theatre. Bare Naked Theatre will bring the songs of David Bowie to life with the roaring energy and emotion of the man who spent a lifetime creating them. This is not a Tribute Show - it’s a personal, raw account of storytelling through contemporary and physical theatre.

The music of Bowie will be realised by Melbourne outfit ROBOT CHILD, a band with an existing synergy of their own and not one that needed to be ‘created’. Robot Child features Gold Logie winner Waleed Aly on lead guitar, whose note perfect version of Comfortably Numb at the recent Walkley Awards popped up on every website from Junkee to The Huffington Post and received well over 100,000 views on youtube.

Anybody who has ever dared to create art will relate to the themes in CHANGES and Bowie fans will, quite simply, lose their minds.
