An Evening with Geoffrey Robertson: Dreaming Too Loud [Brisbane]

Concert Hall, QPAC.

Interpreters: Maree Madden and Mark Cave



Here are some thoughts on the event from interpreter Maree Madden:

“Geoffrey Robertson has long been a hero of mine. He has one of the world’s great legal minds and has an extraordinary breath and depth of knowledge about Australian history. Tonight’s presentation of “Dreaming Too Loud” was an eclectic mix of fascinating facts about Australia’s history, including our role in World War I and how our constitution came into existence, as well as shedding light on remarkable but overlooked Australian heroes. What I admire most about Geoffrey is his tireless struggle for the recognition of human rights. Tonight he shared his knowledge with characteristic humour and had everyone on the edge of their seat. It was an honour and a privilege to interpret tonight with my wonderful interpreting partner Mark Cave”.
