Six masterful acrobats join four chamber musicians and two singers in a stark staging that powerfully unites music with movement. “The piece reverberates with real emotional pungency, as if the essence of homesickness has been bottled. I’ve seen grief many times on stage, but seldom have I seen it depicted so well” (The Guardian, London). Learn more.
