“When my grandmother’s sister Agnes was nine years old, she disappeared…”
What Happened to Agnes brings to life the vivid imagination of singer and story-teller 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 a stunning piano score from Tom Harris, Nishla’s haunting songs bewitch and enchant, drawing the listeners ever deeper into a dark world of lost memories.
Developed by Opera North Projects and Leeds Playhouse, with support from the PRSF Talent Development Programme.
