Hope is the Saddest

City of Shadows
Created & Performed by Rachael Dease (Smack ! Bang)

After winning best local show at Perth Fringe Festival in 2011, Australian songstress Rachel Dease brings her hauntingly beautiful performance to NY. The tale of murder and mayhem entwines 1920’s forensic photographs – rescued from a flooded Sydney warehouse – with a string quartet and ethereal vocals.
