Jan at the Fringe

 

 Jan Thorp  is a music educator and researcher with a passion for Sydney, its cultural history and its music. Her passion has developed into a project to bring the culture of Sydney from 100 years ago alive for modern people by re-creating the silent film shows of that era.  She has lived in Sydney all her life and through her many musical contacts she has been able to find superb professional musician friends who could help to bring her dream alive.  These musicians have brought their own special talents and knowledge to the project which has allowed Jan to research more deeply into how this show could be developed. As she says,  “I knew the show was really talking to modern Sydneysiders when people started to come great distances to see the shows”.
