Torgo (2019)

for 2 pianos

Written for and dedicated to Michael Kieran Harvey and

Arabella Teniswood-Harvey.


Torgo is a character from the 1965 amateur horror film ‘Manos: The Hands of Fate’. With inexplicably enormous prosthetic knees and staggered speech pattern, Torgo hobbles his way through each scene while the actor became addicted to the painkillers he took to cope with the film's production.
