This is about living but it began with a death. This is about existing and not existing, and a child’s heart-bursting belief that there is something in between. This is about choosing and sometimes having no choice. This is about love.

A woman remembers a girl who knew a woman who listened to the birds. Inspired by the depth of feeling in one tiny moment of knowing that the world will never be the same again, this evocative solo work has been developed through the ongoing collaboration between choreographer Christine Devaney, musician Luke Sutherland and artist Yvonne Buskie, exploring the connections and interplay between music, dance and the origins of stories.

*This show will not be performed on Mondays*
