Thirteen Steps to the Attic

By Michelle Cahill

An evocative solo performance, interspersed with moments of tenderness and humour, Thirteen Steps to the Attic is a multi-layered montage of movement and text set to a live sound-score and recorded tracks from the eclectic band Thieves of Silence.

In an attic, in a house, with only letters for company, a woman is led by a man to take a precarious step into the vibrancy of her imagination. Exploring intimacy between Him and Her, connected by words on a page Thirteen Steps to the Attic draws on a true story re-discovered, exploring the known, the unknown, and the invisible desire that was unquestionably real.

From the team that presented the highly-successful show Turf in GTF 2016, Thirteen Steps to the Attic showcases the ability of individual stories to illuminate moments of universal experience.
