My early career was in teaching, writing, producing and directing for theatre, comedy and impro shows. Now I'm a professional creative person. Mostly high-end branding, strategy, writing, editing and digital content creation.
There will be entertainers performing some of the thin white duke's biggest hits live. Between live acts you'll be treated to music videos, rare clips and footage.
We can be heroes just for one day, especially if we dress as Bowie for this event.
The New Globe Theatre foyer and bar will be open from 6pm, with the 176-seater, retro cinema opening its doors at 7pm. There's unreserved seating if you want to sit back and relax, or you can put on your red shoes and dance the blues at the dance floor in front of the big screen. Organisers predict it will be "Packed with audience members dancing by the end of the night!"
There's little one can say about David Bowie that's not already been said. He was a groundbreaking artist whose works will endure for years to come. He influenced and collaborated with so many amazing acts. He was an icon of music, film, fashion and culture. Bowie set trends, broke rules and changed the game. He was a living work of art. There were few people who were unaffected by his passing in January 2016.
Even if you can't make it to the Bowies Down Brunswick charity fundraising event, come along to David Bowie Night and celebrate the genius, the music and the man. The event is for those over 18 years of age and pre-sale tickets are available for $16.50 now, including booking fee.
