My Birthday Party is an evening of performance works curated by Francis Christeller to celebrate birthdays, his, yours, everyone's, and counting the days till we die.
Each work, in lighter or darker tones, enquires into our relationship to our own mortality. From imaginings on how we might meet our end, through musings on the responsibility of bringing life into the world, to voicing the mythical characters who have famously tried to defy mortality.
Cake - Eleanor Sikorski
Possibly the shortest performance in four acts ever made, on the smallest ever stage. Cake is an explosive surprise for the faint hearted. Sequins and love hearts form the backdrop to life's biggest questions.
OE - The Swinehounds
A song cycle based on the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. Offering a new, imagined perspective on Orpheus' journey through the underworld to bargain with Hades and rescue Eurydice from the underworld.
The Swinehounds is a collaboration between Max Barton and Ensemble Perpetuo.
