A Tarot Journey brings together a diversely talented cast of artists to explore the archetypes of the major arcana of the Tarot deck. As the title of the show suggests, the audience is taken on a path through the cards- a journey that has fascinated artists and mystics throughout history. The audience is represented by the Fool on stage, and the overall experience is slightly surreal- a whirling interpretation of the Wheel of Fortune by dancer Cathy Stoyko elevates the spirit, while Roxanne Cowles- MacPhail takes a light look at Death that lives amongst us all. Throughout the performance, Esther Purves-Smith’s Fool brings comic relief, weaving her surprised innocence through each interaction. Suitable for audiences 16 years and older.
