What Happened to Agnes is a staged song cycle that tells the story of Nishla Smith's grandmother’s sister, who disappeared as a child in Malaysia.
The show brings to life the vivid imagination of singer and storyteller Nishla Smith, as she spins her grandmother’s Malaysian childhood memories into a magic-realist realm of talking tigers, hidden dangers and infinite staircases. Set against the vibrant backdrop of Luca Shaw's hand-painted projections and an unforgettable piano score from Tom Harris, Nishla's haunting songs bewitch and enchant, drawing the listeners ever deeper into a dark world of lost memories.
There will also be a post-show talk at this event.
