Dust of Uruzgan
Jerdacuttup Hall
In a powerful and heartwarming combination of songs, narrative and photo projections, Fred Smith delivers an important offering to the Australian public in The Dust of Uruzgan. Skillfully combining his larrikin spirit, wry humour and touching songs, this masterful storyteller eases the audience through the complex and fascinating terrain of a war he has experienced first-hand.
