Operation EVAsion
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A fusion of narrative, aerial arts, multimedia and live accordion music. Based on the bizarre but factual account of the multiple disappearances of the corpse of Eva Peron. Upon her untimely death at age 33, her body was embalmed to the point of immortalisation. Several duplicates were made of her corpse, and in the ensuing Argentinean political turmoil, they all disappeared. Their journey lasted for 21 years and involved espionage, kidnapping, murder and astrology. Firefly Theatre and Circus is based in Western Canada and likes to tell stories in the air.
