Hope Hunt and the Ascension into Lazarus
Oona Doherty performs a distillation of the Male and thumping sweaty theatre. Go on a journey through a dirty Europe between violence and sublime. Hope Hunt attempts to deconstruct the stereotype of the deprived male, and raise it up into a Caravaggio bright white limbo. It is a hunt for hope.
