Sister and brother duo Mikelangelo and Anushka follow the path of their hidden songlines in this sublime and surreal family fable. The two grew up with parents who encouraged creativity as a vital part of life. Alongside their elder brother Victor, they endlessly drew pictures, played music and made up stories and plays. As the siblings moved into their teenage years, they developed their own stage personas and a symbiotic performance style.

Mikelangelo and Anushka have collaborated in many ways over the years, from early public forays with Monty Python skits like ‘String’ and ‘Bookshop’; to touring in the 90s in Australia and the UK as part of absurdist group P. Harness, with their kids show for adults ‘How Things Work’. Anushka was a key player in the musical and theatrical development of Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen in the 2000s, performing as a part of live shows and recording her song ‘Figueres’ for the bands’ second album, Journey Through the Land of Shadows.

In Siblings, Mikelangelo and Anushka bring together a collection of original songs and stories filled with wonder, mystery, horror and joy, making a clandestine spirit map of their journeys to adulthood. Tapping into shared secrets and family mythologies, they weave humour, hope, love and loss into a potent show, accompanied by Dave Evans on accordion and piano.
