alt-J - 'The Actor'

The Actor is a chamber piece written and directed by Saskia Dixie to accompany the eponymous song by alt-J from their 2022 album "The Dream". It follows the story of the all-American actor after his demise in a dilapidated LA hotel. Discovered by his lover, The Heroine, the tale bends into a posthumous pas de deux as she grapples with her loss.
