Information for the Audience: 

Inspired by the famous Fritzl case, in Amstetten, Austria, concerning Josef Fritzl, who detained his daughter Elisabeth, and the children she bore him beneath the family home, this music video resonates as an horrific event of our times, reminiscent of the well-known Grimm tales such as 'Hansel and Gretel' and 'Furreypelt', that explore themes of child abuse and captivity. 


The stark simplicity of this indie-classical music video, realised through diverse filmmaking approaches, makes for a compelling music video of emotional depth. The chilling lyric by Maryanne Lynch and Andrée Greenwell is delivered by popular and classical voices, accompanied by a string quartet of children, doll-house play, and a striking dance improvisation by Scout Higgins.





Greenwell advances her reputation for creating bold film and performance hybrids that explore challenging themes through a featured and original score. Her short films 'Medusahead: a video opera clip for decapitated soprano and 3D animated snakes' and 'Laquiem: a suicide drowning in a hydro-commissioned lake' altogether screened at 23 film, music and digital art festivals, and were purchased for television broadcast screenings in Holland, France and Australia.
