In an ongoing series of collaborations with artists of various non-musical disciplines, and based on the life and works of Gideon Barstow, Myrrh Larsen asks in On A March In The Snow, "what is real, what is fantasy, and what is fate?"
Through interpreting the found journals and letters of Gideon Barstow, Myrrh explores Gideon's strange descent into visions and possibly madness through a seven song cycle. Inspired by the parallels to Myrrh's own work in Gideon's haunting original pieces and creative adaptations, Myrrh presents songs found in Gideon's journals alongside new original work of his own to weave together the ill-fated love story between Gideon and a strange, otherworldly creature.
In this piece of fact and fiction, Myrrh explores what it means to love something or someone who, by their nature, cannot possibly love you back, and blurs the line between the faerie realm and our own.
Offering audiences an immersive multimedia story framed by the more familiar trappings of a rock concert, On A March In The Snow expands the definition of what can be experienced in a club setting, inviting the audience into a world that tears down the walls between fantasy and reality, between seeing a show and becoming a part of it.
Performers: Portland based goth-rocker Myrrh Larsen and contortionist, aerial performer, and Sinferno regular Meg Russell.
