A world-exclusive collaboration between story and song. Acclaimed British writer David Mitchell (Cloud Atlas, Utopia Avenue) will digitally join one of New Zealand’s most cherished singer-songwriters, Hollie Fullbrook of Tiny Ruins, for a unique and intimate performance. During 2020’s lockdown, Hollie reimagined prose by David as songs, while he reimagined songs by Tiny Ruins as short fiction. If I Were a Story and You Were a Song presents their cross-pollinated co-creation: a mosaic of bewitching music and reflective stories. WORD is thrilled to finally bring you this show, postponed from 2021, curated and introduced by Rachael King. Grab your tickets early.
