'You are the very heart of me, the pulse pounding pleasure of your presence is the very essence of my being.'
Based on the real life story of Beatrice Cenci, a medieval woman made famous for murdering her tyrannical father, the award-winning GrimVisions presents a story of suffering, torture and retribution.
Performed in their trademark style, Beatrice's Spell is a combination of daring physical theatre and performance poetry paired with a living and breathing projection design that shines a new light on the beautiful anguish of a legendary woman.
