Performed by Melbourne’s own Andre De Vanny (‘Best Actor’, 2018 New York Solo Festival, 2015 Green Room Awards), Swansong is a “mighty tour de force featuring an indisputable talent” (Australian Theatre). “Andre has one of the most powerful and engrossing presences of any actor I’ve had the pleasure to work with,” Says director Greg Carroll.
Swansong puts Andre in his element, allowing him to flex to his full creative muscle and fill a bleak space with rage, fragility, sadness, loss... It’s mesmerising.”
On the page, Swansong is a taught and gripping read. As a piece of theatre, it speaks to anyone who’s ever felt like an outsider, who’s ever been denied a voice. Occi, for all his flawed humanity, is a symbol of hope; an unlikely hero who faces insurmountable odds and never gives up. His is a timely message – an important story.
