“…indefinable brilliance…Phobia is a playful yet highly sophisticated show…”
– The Australian
Inspired by the thriller Vertigo, Hitchcock’s tantalising film of feigned madness, love and deception, Phobia takes the audience into the beguiling world of film noir via an unusual performance hybrid of music-theatre, physical-theatre and performance art.
Award-winning composer Gerry Brophy combines musical originality with a flair for the theatrical in this genre-defying production. Phobia employs a cast of multi-talented music/movement/stage performers well-known for crossing generic boundaries; members of Fringe Festival Award winning The Ennio Morricone Experience – Boris Conley, Patrick Cronin, David Hewitt and Graeme Leak and physical theatre duo desoxy – Teresa Blake and Dan Witton.
Devised and written by Chamber Made Opera’s artistic director, Douglas Horton, Phobia is a unique and inspiring example of his very original approach to theatre. It will be a night of surprises, some extraordinary feats of physicality, humour and a truly original approach to the making of sound.
