Swans Upon A Time…

…there was a little show with an extravagant name. It was called Things That Fall Over: an anti-musical of a novel inside a reading of a play, with footnotes, and oratorio-as-coda. It was a new kind of show. A show that wasn’t a show. It was a curious beast of a thing and sightings were rare, for this was a show that wasn’t to be shown or seen so much as to be shared, or sung, to be immersed in or enfolded by, to be rumoured of or stumbled upon, sometimes with friends, and sometimes with strangers, at choir practices and in workshops and in sight readings in lounge rooms and via long-winded emails and minor modular manifestations and detachable oratorios and passages of descriptive writing on the internet, and in funding applications and through occasional fleeting glimpses in the public domain….

Then came 2014.

What happened next?

Watch this space for news of an imminent one-off public presentation of TTFO in all its melodious madness, falling-down glory and preposterous excess.
