Mon 17 to Sun 23 Sep
A centuries-old stone gargoyle atop a church is struck by lightning and falls into the river below. By some unknown miracle he is granted life. Haunted by the symbolism and connotations of his creation, he lives his days under a bridge by the highway, using legends of other mythical monsters to craft a false but comforting lineage.
He awakes one day to find a group of people in his space – the audience. He is scared and hesitant at first, but soon finds that his stories can’t help but come pouring out.
The Melbourne Fringe debut of local actor and writer Jake Matricardi is a genre-defying mashup of monologue, mythology, and physical theatre to an eclectic electronica score. *The Gargoyle" is a gothic fairy tale about otherness, monstrosity and the power of storytelling in our culture as a means of making sense out of chaos.
