AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The life of William Morris - poet, designer, socialist visionary - and the music of Björk: are these the materials for a modern opera? The Inner West Creative Mime Atelier think so. As their project unfolds to the dream-like tempo of a Sydney summer, it intersects the lives of the narrator, his grandchild, his daughter Gracie and her intended spouse. His wife's absence meanwhile gives the narrator time to ponder the theory of narrative, the roles that life calls on us to play, and the disturbing fascination of the ensemble's young choreographer.' (Publisher's blurb)
