Through brilliant, classic theatre, Andre De Vanny (‘Best Actor’, 2015 Green Room Awards) uses a raw energy in a solo performance, unravelling heartbreak and horror.
Directed by Melbourne Fringe co-founder, Greg Carroll, Swansong is an acclaimed production, and roller-coaster ride transporting its audiences into the life of one enraged ‘Occi’.
Abused and isolated, Occi struggles to avoid his ghosts and tortured memories of mental institutions. He is violent and vulnerable, soaked in alcohol and yearning, seeking redemption.
But the challenge is to perceive Occi as more than a thug – as he and his mother fight for survival in a tough garrison town on the edge of a cruel and unforgiving world.
