WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A touching, funny, cinematic and surreal one-woman show enhanced by live music technology. Through the prism of Vincent van Gogh's recognisable late work, Bedroom in Arles, she explores the phenomenon of living life in a coma and the healing power of art. The piece is directed by internationally renowned teacher and director John Wright, also known as a founding member of acclaimed theatre companies Trestle and Told by an Idiot. When she was three years old, Annie's life was skewed off-course. On her 18th birthday, it threatens to happen again. What is it like to be in a coma? To love someone in a coma? What would van Gogh say about it if you hung out with him in his room at Arles? And what does a pigeon called Muhammad Ali eat for breakfast?
