A Murder Story Retold in Three Symphonic Vignettes

by Ninefold
presented by The Flying Nun and Ninefold - a theatre ensemble


A suburban domestic helper gets revenge on an abusive master by fatal poisoning. The narrative warps and shifts with each retelling defined by the contemporary classical music chosen for each story.


This work is Ninefold’s latest experiment in form. It is an investigation into how repetition, physical scoring, music and sparse dialogue are interlaced to depict story in a non-naturalistic way. In choreographing everyday physical actions, we magnify nuances of ordinary life to discover its operatic grandeur.
