Whether you love opera or not, try it. This poignant and funny performance of anecdote and movement explores an opera queen's love of Joan Sutherland (and encounters with La Stupenda), while reflecting on his relationship with his mother. A playful homage to Kazuo Ohno's iconic butoh performance, Admiring L'Argentina. Camp storytelling, lyrical movement; a captivating display of light and dark, absence, humour and diva worship for dance, theatre and opera lovers alike. Laughing and crying optional, that warm glow of being in the company of someone passionate about their topic, highly likely. Supported by University of Worcester.
