Come Away with Me to the End of the World

 

Come Away with Me to the End of the World is a meditation on life and death between three performers who have been working together for more then twenty years. The audience watches as they shape and reshape themselves confronting the space between their actual lives and their dreamed selves.

Designed by visual artist Callum Morton, Come Away with Me to the End of the World asks questions about how we live, how we want to live, about change and the desire for it as we brush up against our own mortality.

"The curiosity with which the performers hold each other sheds light on small spaces and private moments of existence. Come Away with Me to the End of the World does more in its meditations on the intimate than theatre crammed full of ideas."

Sally Hussey, Artshub

"Polished, surprising and beautifully executed."

Chis Boyd, The Australian

"Simultaneously eccentric, unpredictable, intimate, funny and bewildering."

Kate Herbert, Herald Sun
