The Blood Vote

- Performing Arts Fringe Festival

The Blood Vote is a ground-breaking opera circus experience by composer Jenny Game and librettist Caitlin Vincent. In this festival premiere production, famed Australian suffragist Vida Goldstein (1869-1949) faces the inevitability of Invention. 

Transgressing notions of high and low art, The Blood Vote celebrates the skills of the human body and the human voice, generating a spectacular immediacy with the audience.
This project received Cash to Create through the Fringe Fund.
