Cordelia, Mein Kind is a duet for film and live body; a personal exploration of a present-day Cordelia-like character revealed through language, physicality, image and film.
Inspired by Shakespeare's King Lear, the piece combines original interviews (between a contemporary Cordelia and her father, a Yiddish-speaking Holocaust survivor now in his dotage and living in ‘exile’ in the Melbourne suburb of Bentleigh), and other visual imagery, with a language that is gestural, poetic, direct and physical.
The multiplicity of performance languages weave seamlessly together, creating a challenging and unique performance work.

…deeply textured, multilayered and savagely poetical work…. Real Time
Here is theatre – visceral, elemental, brutal – that will heave your heart into your mouth.

.... a multi-stranded narrative that literally pulsates, like an exploded heart, with deep feeling and mystery
