Pataka presents 'Hell Here Now', A musical interpretation of the Gallipoli diary of Alfred Cameron by Wellington musicians Catherine Mckay, Slava Fainitiski and Brenton Veitch with readings from the diary by Robin Kerr.

'This performance will feature Alfred Hill's recently rediscovered Trio in A Minor showing the imperial optimism of the New Zealand that Alfred Cameron was leaving. The second piece, the, the Faure Elegy, shows Cameron's despair at the loss of his friends and what the historian Chris Pugsley has called, 'the stark reality of a group of amateur citizen soldiers facing wars reality for the first time. And there was nothing glorious about it. It was mistake, blunder, muddle, death and disease.'

The performance takes place in front of Bob Kerr's large painting of Gallipoli.

Performance is free but limited to 30 seats per performance so booking is essential.
