Promoting the English edition of the book on Strzelecki, „The Ballad of an Explorer…”, the whole performance was in English.

The Master of Ceremony, Barbara Gurney introduced the authors of the book. On behalf of a sponsor, the Mt Kosciuszko Inc., Adam Dzięcioł gave a short introduction on the Strzelecki's part in the history of Australia.

Anna Habryn, having thanked to all who helped with organization of this promotion, invited the well-known not only in WA, women's choir „Le Joie delle Donne” which warmed the room with some Italian love songs. Adam Fiala read his own poem „Hey, Charlie Tara” and played a didgeridoo.

The central point of the program however determined the three songs from the „Portrait with Women”, a play on Strzelecki by A.Habryn, being prepared by the theatre Scene 98 to be staged next year. The director Thomas Bujakowski announced producing the performances in both languages: Polish and English.

Melodies to the songs were composed by a teenage actress (of the Adyna's age) Claudia Sosin. She performed them with help of Magda Lisek, while Stanislaw Tomasiak and Maciej Warzycki provided the instrumental accompaniment.
