Gig Information

Strange Ancestors is a music theatre show written and performed by Floral Clocks (Richard von Sturmer, Gabriel White, Robert Sly and Kingsley Spargo). Run in conjunction with Fringe Festival.

Through songs and stories, the show explores the idiosyncratic side of historical personalities like Jean Cocteau, Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud, Clarice Lispector, Mademoiselle de la Force, Étienne de Silhouette and Lindsay Kemp. Cambrian organisms, dancing bears, and eels also feature.

Strange Ancestors is an imaginary reunion, a genealogy of the narrator’s psyche, an outpouring of joy.

Travel to familiar-unfamiliar places, minds and times, and leave energised with music, touched by stories and surprised by the hope that comes from meeting wonderful strangers.

Writer, narrator: Richard von Sturmer
Singer, composer: Gabriel White
Piano, co-arranger: Robert Sly
Percussion, additional instruments: Kingsley Spargo
