Biped’s Monitor is a unique site-based theatrical experience merging highly-physical
and aerial theatre with an ethereal operatic score. Inspired by Italo Calvino’s
magical folktale The Baron In the Trees and created for the disused chapel and
trees of the iconic Nunhead Cemetery. Performed at dusk, the performance invited
the audience to roam through strange and evocative moments of the Baron’s memories.
Blending texts from Ralph Waldo Emerson, Italo Calvino and William Blake,
Biped’s Monitor is a voyage of unexpected events – of delicacy, violence, nature and release.
