Details

Edith Cole worked a dead-end job in a funeral parlour.
Ralph Conti worked wealthy widows for a quick buck.
Neither expected to fall in love.
But once they did, they just kept on falling.
Inspired by the true story of the ‘Lonely Hearts Killers’, a pair of latter-day Macbeths who gripped the imagination of 1950s America, Hummingbird is dark and compelling physical theatre.
Award-winning, Lecoq-trained Tooth+Nail blend acrobatics and action with a striking visual style to tell a deviously touching tale of love and murder. Using a soundscape of songs, jingles, adverts and other Americana to conjure up the post-war era, it casts light on the motivation of a couple that believes owning the right car will buy them entry into a society that has rejected them.
A sepia-toned doomed romance… Immaculate. ????(The Scotsman)
A truly beautiful, haunting story that blurs the line between right and wrong, and will question your empathy. ???? (The Australia Times)
