Nelson Arts Festival presents THE ORCHID AND THE CROW

Nelson Arts Festival presents THE ORCHID AND THE CROW

A Salvador Dinosaur Production (Australia)

A life affirming musical comedy about family, faith and survival.

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.

"Daniel Tobias' Orchid and Crow turns divine vengeance into comedy gold." THE AGE

"Tobias is an intelligent, dynamic and honest performer who is highly entertaining to watch. This show will renew your faith in love, life, and possibly even Lance Armstrong." CBC CANADA
