A Return To The Old Stompin’ Ground!

So this happened yesterday. Hothouse Studios in St Kilda with all-round legend Craig Harnath. Can’t tell you why just yet. Only know that it is for something extremely fun and silly. Which, obviously, is not The Book of Dirt: The Musical.

The Book of Dirt Trailers!

The Book of Dirt: A Grandson’s Search

A walk through the abandoned spaces of Theresienstadt and Birkenau. During his search, Bram was granted unprecedented access into the usually off-limits abandoned spaces of Theresienstadt.
