Basement Theatre, Auckland. 30 Oct - 3 Nov, 2018.
Love. Bloodlines. The Highland Clearances.
VIOLENT BLOOM is a solo play and song cycle that thrashes between the intensely personal and the cosmic in a genealogical freefall.
Andrew begins a scramble through ancient Scotland, Western Australia and Grey Lynn as he attempts to escape uneasy truths about himself.
Driven through a series of original songs, VIOLENT BLOOM is a meditation on love and our relationship to our ancestry, performed in English and Scots Gaelic.
