an exercise in compassion, health & hope
Requiem for the Living is a musical composition inspired by the plight
of children orphaned by AIDS. This work was conceived as an exercise in compassion and written over a period of five years as a personal
response to human misery by composer Dr Rexleigh Bunyard.
Its purpose is to draw attention to the suffering of all children who are victims of abuse, neglect and tragic illness caused by adults in our society, and motivate creative solutions to suffering from the broader community.
Requiem for the Living gives identity to an NPO (RFTL) formed to raise
public awareness and funds for the disadvantaged. The vision and mission of this company is to encourage a more compassionate and hopeful society.
Requiem for the Living aims to bring together communities of the privileged and
needy through concert performances to raise awareness of the desperate needs of
AIDS orphans/families affected by AIDS, and to develop a network of people
to raise funds for their support.
Lost in a Bluebell Wood, The Rainbow's Child and Namaste are
musico-dramatic/dance works with a variety of derivative virtual
formats devised for maximum appeal and portability.
