Murmurs

I watched Murmurs without knowing what I was going to watch and a while into it, I still had no idea whether I was watching a play, a dance performance, a mime, a magic show or a comedy. Murmurs is the story of a young woman’s surreal experience of moving out of her home.

The charming protagonist, Aurelia Thierree, is Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter, and the director is her mother – these are facts I learned post watching.  What was incredible about the show is that the magical reality it drags the audience into is completely natural. Moving buildings, faceless men with an unknown agenda, a couple dancing in the air, an ocean that appears out of the blue, sweeps everything off the ground only to disappear and leave the world untouched, shoes that know which feet to fit and boxes that digest furniture and spit out working light bulbs, broken umbrellas and a woman getting to know her new world with confidence constituted a beautiful new reality to walk into with Aurelia Thierree’s lead.
