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.
Presented by Pressure Point, the makers of GOD-BELLY and POTATO STAMP (Excellence Award for Overall Production, Auckland Theatre Awards 2016.)
Responses to previous work:
“It’s smart, funny and delightfully inventive, and best of all it ends on a note of such unexpected, preposterous and yet soul-stirring grace, you’ll walk away feeling enlarged, grateful. Rewarded.”
– Simon Wilson, Metro on POTATO STAMP
“There is a depth of intelligence and insight into human behaviour that belies the youth of its creators” – John Smythe, Theatreview on GOD-BELLY
