When

Every day, 7pm to 10pm Friday 11 June to Saturday 12 June

A vampire’s human familiar, whose burning desire to be turned becomes all-consuming. The familiar mournfully traverses debris of iconography — a cowboy, a veil, a ghost double — in a futile search for transformation. 

Composed and performed by Marcus Whale. Set and costume design by Chloe Corkran and Athena Thebus.
