More Guilty Than the Poet
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre and SA Circus Centre
Using music, dance, theatre and acrobatics, More Guilty than the Poet reflects our conflicting rejection of, and attraction to, our own mortality.
A chamber cabaret of pleasure, fatalism and the romanticised death wish, this visceral show follows the story of an upturned boat on the edge of the River Styx, full of travellers both ready to embrace death and desperate to run from it.
Featuring prominent tenor Robert Macfarlane’s interpretation of Schubert’s iconic lieder and stunning choreography, More Guilty than the Poet gives a new face to the old grim reaper.
