Highgate is a morbid romp through Victorian funerary culture, jumping straight from the darkest part of Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg’s imagination. Reflecting personal and collective grief, a band of figures captivate in this fascinating gothic feast of death, physical oddity, humour, and horror. A group piece to be performed by five dancer-actors with site specific elements, and costuming by Alice Mansell.
Highgate premiered at The Cultch, April 30, 2013.
