Avanti Display

Music/Sound, Theatre

A promotional image of a magician's hand holding an egg. It says Crow in yellow text.

Crow takes the form of a music concert, interrupted by acts of comic conjuring & poetry, around the ideas of the crow and the egg. As full darkness falls, sleight of hand and video projection expand this world, suggesting ideas both profound and absurd.

There are five people on the road, with minimal technical requirements. It’s an evening performance set at twilight with engaging activity during the day.
In all their work they try to entertain the audience whilst taking them somewhere they have never been.

About Bit Of Crow

This is a 15 minute version of the show specifically for the daytime and takes the form of a strange music gig, as three hapless musicians perform haunting, melancholic tunes to accompany a series of absurd cabaret acts.
