queerupnorth in association with the Library Theatre Comapny presents

A mysterious figure captured in a painting, sold and stolen, displayed and desired over the course of a century, now hidden in a Viennese brothel by a madness. Salon evenings with secrets in every sip and whisper, enacted for a beautiful figure frozen on canvas.
Bawdy, Wry and witty, Provenance plumbs the highs and lows of human experience in a play that is tender, exotic and wonderfully beautiful. Burkett’s colourful cast of marionettes are as real and emotive as any actor could ever hope to be, including laughter with the most subtle of gestures, or bringing tears as he unfolds an exquisite story about beauty – and our desire to possess it, become it, or destroy it
