A Salvador Dinosaur Production. Written and performed by Daniel Tobias (AUSTRALIA)
A life affirming musical comedy about family, faith and survival.
Daniel Tobias grew up in a Jewish-atheist household. In 2004 he found out he had stage-four testicular cancer and went searching for God. Any God. Enter Lance Armstrong, seven-time winner of the Tour de France and legendary cancer survivor.
Reflecting on Daniel’s real life experiences, The Orchid and The Crow is a solo performance: part storytelling, part cabaret, part theatre, featuring original songs from the award-winning writers of Die Roten Punkte. Segueing between rock, pop, and contemporary opera, Daniel effortlessly draws us into the inspiring tale of his almost-death experience.
The Orchid and The Crow is a funny, uplifting musical about faith, family and survival – not to be missed!
