Fresh from a sold-out season at Dark Mofo, The Irresistible is a darkly funny sci-fi thriller that takes audiences on an intoxicating dive into the unconscious biases within us all.
April has long chosen to forget the inexplicable event that defined her childhood. Her sister, Bridget, remains haunted by the event which has pushed the sisters apart over the years. When April’s niece comes to stay, the shadowy memory that has permeated every moment of their lives begins to take shape and take over.
The audience are drawn through parallel narratives through innovative use of simple staging, ingenious audio manipulation and two spellbinding performances from Adriane Daff and Tim Watts. Locations and time bleed into one another with dreamlike fluidity as performers transition from one character to the next at breakneck-speed, making The Irresistible both utterly original and deeply affecting.
The Irresistible is part of the Sydney Opera House’s UnWrapped season.
