Edith Cole worked a dead-end job in a funeral parlour. Ralph Conti worked wealthy widows for a quick buck. Neither expected to fall in love. But once they did, they just kept on falling. Inspired by the true story of the ‘Lonely Hearts Killers’, a pair of latter-day Macbeths who gripped the imagination of 1950s America, Hummingbird is dark and compelling physical theatre. Award-winning, Lecoq-trained Tooth+Nail blend acrobatics and action with a striking visual style to tell a deviously touching tale of love and murder. Using a soundscape of songs, jingles, adverts and other Americana to conjure up the post-war era, it casts light on the motivation of a couple that believes owning the right car will buy them entry into a society that has rejected them. A sepia-toned doomed romance… Immaculate.

★★★★(The Scotsman) A truly beautiful, haunting story that blurs the line between right and wrong, and will question your empathy. ★★★★ (The Australia Times)
