The Canadian original that rocked the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe, Century Song is a riveting hybrid of theatre, music, dance, and visual art featuring the powerful, Dora Award-winning soprano, Neema Bickersteth. Inspired in part by Virginia Woolf’s Orlando and Alice Walker’s In Search of Our Mother’s Gardens, Bickersteth inhabits a century of women whose identities are contained within her own. It is an exquisite, wordless experience, featuring music by some of the most adventurous composers of the past 100 years against a visual tapestry of inventive and influential art.
“Without words – we’re forced to exist in all the other ways we communicate.”
– Neema Bickersteth, Soprano
