Dead Awaken
  • Edinburgh Fringe

In this four person concert drama, a celebrated artist struggles to atone for the sins of his past, while desperately searching for a new future. A reimagining of Ibsens final play set to a concept album of neo-soul and hip hop music. Dead Awaken explores the line that separates man from beast and the conflict between survival and passion. Director and composer Brian Carbine, along with co-composer and lead performer Preston Butler III, infiltrate the canon with language, music and bodies that reflect our contemporary landscape.
