Vulture Culture - Concept and Direction

It was performed outside by a cast of fifty actors, dancers and musicians. First presented on the banks of the Thames at Henley, then at the Thames Barrier and Magdalen College Island, Oxford. The show was subsequently adapted for inside performances for TN Theatre, Brisbane, Australia, and scored by composer, Frank Millward, for the Queensland Theatre Orchestra, conducted by John Curro.
