Firefly Theatre and Circus (Alberta, Canada)

A fusion of narrative, aerial arts, multimedia and live accordion music. Based on the bizarre but factual account of the multiple disappearances of the corpse of Eva Peron. Upon her untimely death at age 33, her body was embalmed to the point of immortalisation. Several duplicates were made of her corpse, and in the ensuing Argentinean political turmoil, they all disappeared. Their journey lasted for 21 years and involved espionage, kidnapping, murder and astrology. Firefly Theatre and Circus is based in Western Canada and likes to tell stories in the air.

An engaging,compelling story of the post mortem adventures of Eva Peron as told by aerial artist, Annie Dugan. This is a charmingly staged telling of a macabre and intriguing story of the power wielded by those in possession of the embalmed corpse of Argentina’s beloved Evita. It’s a bizarre series of events as told by Ms Dugan from a position hovering above the stage. I was in awe at the ease with which the performer exhibits such physical control and use of core strength while relating an amazingly complex story. A live soundtrack of Argentine-styled Tango music on accordion adds a rich and vibrant texture to this compelling hour of theatre.
