16 ENTERTAINMENT THURSDAY NOVEMBER 1 2018 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 ONE hundred years ago a document was signed that effectively ended what was then known as the war to end all wars. The Armistice of November 11 1918, which saw the end of World War I hostilities, closed one of the bloodiest chapters of human history. To commemorate 100 years since the truce, the Darwin Chorale has put together a nostalgic concert that involves both song and narrative. Featuring a cast of local actors, a 40-strong choir and full band, Voices of Remembrance: A Territory Story of War and Peace will journey back to Darwin before the war and reveal the role that music played in keeping up morale. Writer and director Shalom Kaa said he had wanted to tell a Territory version of events, set in Darwin, with an Anzac twist. The overall concept is how music kept everyone going so the songs span several genres, he said. The soundtrack includes Pack Up Your Troubles, Its A Long Way To Tipperary and Now Is The Hour. Mr Kaa said other songs that helped take peoples minds off the conflict have also been included. Like Side by Side, I Do Love To Be Beside The Seaside, The Man I Love and Anything Goes. Theres of course songs about the Gallipoli landing, he said. Im endeavouring to find a balance between a war that essentially did not end all wars and yet still pay respect to the sacrifice that our diggers gave. I also wanted to invite consideration about how the journey to peace starts a lot closer home. Music is part of that inner journey. The story will see two Darwin boys Rusty Taylor (played by first-time actor Jackson Ralph) and an indigenous character known as G (played by Darren Edwards) set off for Gallipoli on April 26 1915, just hours after the first Anzac Cove landing. Back home in Darwin, against of backdrop of unrest that led to the Darwin Rebellion, Rustys mother Mary (played by Cat Hart), father John (played by Mark Bunnett) and neighbour Eve (played by Alison Shaw) hope for their family members return. Voices of Remembrance: A Territory Story of War and Peace will be performed at the Darwin Entertainment Centre on Saturday. Tickets are $55 and available at yourcentre.com.au Voices of Remembrance Mexican fiesta at the Rails Darwin Railway Club is hosting a Mexican Day of the Dead party tomorrow, with music and Mexican food and drinks. Katie Cheetham and Lindsay Wright get into the sprit of the party Picture: Katrina Bridgeford HALLOWEEN may be over but the Darwin Railway Club is offering Darwin fun lovers another opportunity to get into some skeletal shenanigans this weekend. Its Day of the Dead party tomorrow evening will see all things Mexican front and centre at the local watering hole. Featuring live music from Americana, roots and country music performer Tony Robinson, as well as themed food and drinks, the Day of the Dead event will see the Rails transformed into a Mexican fiesta. Event co-ordinator Anna Stewart said the club had decided to put on the event for a bit of fun. And we wanted to check out and learn about the different tequilas that are around, she said. Ms Stewart said the Day of the Dead was a celebration of life and death. It essentially is welcoming spirits back to the realm of living for a brief moment, she said. Doors open from 5pm and punters who are keen to get into the spirit of things can get their faces painted by Megan Flemming, who will be on hand from 6:30pm to add some skeletal styles to willing attendees. Ms Stewart said it was a good excuse to get dolled up for a night out. If you are going out later, you can come here first to get your face done, she said. The gig has also presented a good opportunity to show off the Railway Clubs new outside deck. Da de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, typically begins on the first day of November, which is also known as All Saints Day. It is celebrated in Mexico between October 31 and November 2 and combines ancient traditions and modern fanfare. It is believed that the spirits of the dead return to visit the living and there is a focus is on celebrating life both past and present.
