A theatrical companion-piece to singer and multi-instrumentalist Rowan Rheingans’s acclaimed debut solo album, 2019’s The Lines We Draw Together, this Fringe First-winning performance – likewise inspired by her German grandmother’s 1940s childhood – combines original songs and storytelling with fiddle and banjo accompaniment, live looping and pre-recorded sounds. Variously exploring themes of “memory, history, fascism, waltzes, folk-song, bird-song, trauma, family and war”, it ultimately celebrates human empathy and resilience, together with the power of small acts of resistance.
“Sublime. . . stitched with the subtlety of an expert dressmaker. . . packs a fierce political punch.” (Guardian)
A limited number of additional tickets will be released through via the Tron Theatre Box Office from November 24th.
