Tao of Glass
Philip Glass & Phelim McDermott

"Marvellously entertaining and deeply touching." - The Times (UK)

Phelim McDermott is a master storyteller—a theatrical alchemist and spinner of yarns who has summoned this astonishingly original show about making a show. Composer Philip Glass and performer-director Phelim McDermott have worked together on acclaimed opera productions around the world. Now they have joined forces for their most personal collaboration yet.

Tao of Glass takes ten brand-new pieces by Philip Glass and pairs them with ten meditations on life, death and Taoist wisdom performed by McDermott with an ensemble of musicians and puppeteers. The result is a warm, fun and utterly compelling fusion of music, theatre, puppetry and philosophical musing held together by a highly-personal monologue about the nature of creativity, memory and personal identity. Part-concert, part-performance, Tao of Glass is a storytelling tapestry, soundtracked by Glass’s mesmerising music and bursting with theatricality.
