By Opera Viscera  


“Cass was a spirit stuck in a form that would not hold her”- Charles Bukowski. 


After its sold-out production of Narcissus and Echo at OPEN Ealing, Opera Viscera now present this American story of nature, destruction & beauty by Charles Bukowski at VAULT Festival. 


From Bukowski’s short story, The Most Beautiful Woman In Town, Cass, 19, gives herself away without care, soaring to stunning, self-destroying summits. Her reflection threatens to overpower her, like the wind her motion never stops and she cannot hide because her breath moves nature.

Opera Viscera transforms Cass into music. Between concert performance, story telling and dance, this unusual ensemble evokes a dangerous but irresistible figure, inviting the audience to be intimate with her, contemplating beauty and its power over our contemporary perversions.”

Ursula O’Reilly Traynor‘s insight:

I can’t resist.

I’m going to this.
