Song and dance become power in this semi-diegetic, all new, world premiere musical! Albireo tells the story of brothers Wriker and Chambers. Half human, half siren, their mythological hypnotic powers only activate when singing together in harmony. Two sides of a whole and separated for some time, Wriker only brings trouble when he barges back into Chambers’ life, and on the night of a crucial dinner party, no less! A mess of comedy, chaos, the meaning of family, silence and song, Albireo has something for just about anyone, on top of being a dose of good old fashioned fun! Written by a UBC Creative Writing Alumni and Master’s of Creative Writing student of University of Edinburgh Annahis Basmadjian. Special note the show features the use of ASL (American Sign Language)
