Savage Grace

Gilgamesh

About

Towering ravens, barn owls and gargantuan grey wolves creep down laneways… Gnarled and haggard white witches carrying glowing lanterns and shadow puppets illuminated the crisp night sky… Savage Grace is a celebration of dreamers, schemers and engineers of imagination, powered by hundreds of colourful performers and visionary makers.

The Story

A relentless ballad, a deliriously dark and delicious waltz between love and loss.

A heady concoction of murky mythology and nocturnal animal energy, Savage Grace sees dancing wolves, seductive raven tricksters and inconsolable plague mourners descend on the city streets at twilight to transform and transfix… Foreboding rhythms and musical laments, packaged in rhyme and riddle, herald the arrival of Baba Yaga, a formidable figure defined only by her striking ambiguity.
