Dr Ian Chapman & the Cosmic Jive Trio present David Bowie & the Art of Being Different.

In this sparkling interactive performance and accompanying talk Dr Ian Chapman unravels the extraordinary marriage of sound and visual effect that lies at the heart of the work of David Bowie, one of the most complex, enduring, and empowering performers in the history of popular music.

Dr Chapman, musician, academic, and author of Experiencing David Bowie: A Listener’s Guide (2015), and David Bowie FAQ (2020), both published by Rowman & Littlefield, US, and his Cosmic Jive Trio bring to the stage superb acoustic arrangements of David Bowie’s finest songs, arranged especially for the show. The honest simplicity of the stripped back and largely acoustic instrumentation allows Bowie’s masterful songwriting to take centre stage.

David Bowie & the Art of Being Different is a wonderfully entertaining celebration of eccentric creativity, a testament to how the arts can improve mental health and provide empowerment, a blueprint for how to deal with bullying, and a triumphant affirmation of the power of difference.

You can purchase online or directly from the Opera House Ticket Office or phone bookings on 03 433 0770 between 10 am-4 pm Mon-Fri.

The box office and the Opera House Cafe & Bar is open 1 hour prior to the show commencing and during interval. Please call 03 433 0770 if you require wheelchair seating.
