Tell Me My Name

From Upbeat, 1:00 pm on 28 March 2017

Riddles are the subject of composer Norman Meehan’s latest project. He’s set 13 riddles by poet Bill Manhire to music, which are sung by Hannah Griffin. Tell Me My Name marks the fifth collaboration between this talented trio. Victoria University Press has produced a beautiful hardback book, which includes the poems/riddles alongside eight photographs by the celebrated artist Peter Peryer, and a CD of the music. The stage production will premier in April at Wanaka’s ‘Festival of Colour’.
