What is it that propels us to get up after loss, after heartbreak, after failure?
Fifteen performers surface from the aftermath, the wake of a disaster, in the haunting Song For a Weary Throat, as live music from the critically-acclaimed contemporary vocalists Invenio Singers meets the exquisite image making and uninhibited physicality of the Rawcus Ensemble.
Set in an abandoned dance hall, Song For a Weary Throat follows a logic that is emotional rather than linear. Dangerously beautiful, irresistibly tender and filled with fragility, Song For a Weary Throat reminds us that hope is never out of reach.
Song For a Weary Throat premiered at Theatre Works in December 2017.
