Rasta Thomas

1 post in this topic

A friend of mine Bill Stephens interviewed Rasta Thomas a few months ago for his program on Artsound a radio production for the National capital region of Canberra.

Thomas's Bad Boys of Ballet were coming to tour in Australia. They were also performing in Canberra which is not always on the dance calendar. Thomas was a no-show

for opening night. There was no insert, no announcement and no replies to inquiry as to why he didn't perform. There certainly could have been a very valid reason for him not

dancing, but generally there is some acknowledgement as to why an artist can't appear. Especially since his appearance was somewhat anticipated based on his celebrity. I don't want

to sound too critical but it didn't seem very professional.

On the other hand his interview with Bill who kindly copied me a transcript was interesting and Rasta Thomas eloquent and the program sounded interesting.
