Sydney/Purgatorio is a mysterious story with Sydney as the location of Purgatorio, visited  by Dante and Beatrice, who become mixed up in Sydney crimes and the lives of people whom we know. It abounds with graphic imagery and and exploration of the psychic life of Sydney which is ‘really something’.  

In the presentation, Craig who is a famous story teller as well as a Jungian Analyst will show slides of some of the images and  stories from the upcoming graphic novel and weave a mystic story of Sydney past and present.

The images for the graphic novel have been created by artist Joshua Santospirito who collaborated with Craig previously to create the acclaimed graphic novel 'The Long Weekend In Alice Springs'. This is an account of a long weekend in Alice Springs seen through Craig's eyes as a Jungian therapist who works in Alice.  It won several awards including the Northern Territory Literary Award and  has become something of a  local ‘cult classic’. Some of the story and images have been converted into an animated film and has been shown at MONA FOMO  Tasmania  festival 2016 and at the Analysis and Politics conference in London 2016.

Dr Craig San Roque is a Jungian Analyst living and working in Alice Springs, NT. He is a noted author, public speaker and story teller from the Soul's perspective. His previous award winning publication is 'The Long weekend in Alice Springs' adapted and drawn by Joshua Santospirito, 2013, San Kessto Publications Tasmania www.sankessto.com/product/the-long-weekend-in-alice-springs
