2017 Nelson Arts Festival | The Orchid and the Crow

An award-winning, life affirming musical comedy about family, faith and survival.

Wed 11 Oct, 7pm
Thu 12 Oct, 7pm
70 mins, no interval

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.

Warning: Contains adult themes.
