King Midas and the Touch of Gold
The classic story of unintended consequences
A warning to all of us to be careful of what we wish for – as true today as it was when Ovid wrote down the old tale two thousand years ago.
The recording was made in Nov. 2016 at my annual performance for halbNeun Theater in Darmstadt.
(My thanks to regular attendee Karsten Christiansen for attending to the camera.)
The video clips here are all amateur quality, shot in various theatres.
Their intention is just to show the range of my storytelling and give a flavour of a live performance.
