A celebration of untold stories of the Gold Rush. Presented during Melbourne Fashion Week by Barking Spider Visual Theatre. State Library of Victoria, 4 September 2014.
Who would have expected that Melbourne Fashion Week could include such an original gem of a spectacle as Liberty of the Press?
We waited, not knowing what to expect, in the dim light under the magnificent high dome of the La Trobe Reading Room in the State Library of Victoria. All around us, people who were not, apparently, the audience, sat under their green reading lamps, doing what people normally do in libraries and perhaps wondering what was going on.
