(SOLD OUT) LOCUS AMOENUS – atresbandes
PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT – WAITING LIST ONLY
Produced by Outer Circle Arts
Every step we take, we are struggling to reach paradise, an idyllic place where everyday problems disappear. We dream about our vision of paradise, struggling to get a little closer. This struggle is a journey and we often forget to look at the landscape along the way.
Three strangers catch a train at 5.07am. An hour later, the train is derailed and all three are killed. What thoughts go through the minds of people who don’t know they are about to die? A series of conversations and situations, efforts to understand and be understood. A journey in search of paradise.
