Murder

Erth
Inspired by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' Murder Ballads
Australian Premiere Season

Australia

Inspired by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' Murder Ballads, theatre magicians Erth meditate on the violence staining our world and delve into our culture’s obsession with murder. Bringing to life the band’s shadowy characters through puppetry, digital imagery, old carny tricks and a razor-sharp, mind-blowing performance, this is a wickedly clever and savagely funny show. Lust for life as a sinister, yet compelling, figure conjures a dark world of love, sex and death.
