An evening of conversation, anecdotes and reminiscences with Trader Faulkner, Australian actor of stage and screen.
Actor Trader Faulkner will share memories of his friendship with artist Dora Gordine, his experience modelling for her at her home and studio Dorich House in the 1950s, and their shared love of dance – hers for ballet and his for Flamenco, to which he introduced her.
Trader, who spent his stage career working with some of the leading actors and directors of the day, including John Gielgud, Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh and Peter Hall, will also share anecdotes about his time in theatre and film. Trader will be in conversation with Nesley Joy.
