A visceral fable about the power of fantasy and the fantasy of power. A history of the universe as told by the Butcher – refugee, criminal, shaman – through poetry, martial dance, and folk songs in an invented language. A series of evocative meditations on deserts both real and imaginary.
This interdisciplinary work opens new doors for solo performance by combining embodied abstraction with contemporary themes. It is an official selection of UNITED SOLO 2011, the world’s largest solo theatre festival, offering seventy-seven unique solo works.
