A pocket full of posies
Ashes to ashes
We all fall down

Can one travel through time through sound? Can one construct a sound narrative that takes shape form solely in the minds of the spectators/viewers? Ashes is an aleph of sounds flowing in parallel, a stream of overlapping moments that are heard for an instant before disappearing.
Heard for an instant before disappearing. A concert for voices and music performed live, an immersive sound journey: a reflection on the imaginative power of sound and word, on the importance of the 'now' and its characteristics of impermanence, so fascinating and disturbing at the same time.
A sequence of events unfolds without interruption: brief fragments of private lives private lives, birthdays, parties, deaths, killings, animals, Christmas trees, dinosaurs, microbiology, geology, everything that passes and does not remain, but which defines and gives a precise meaning to the lives of us human beings. The four performers talk, play, shout, fight, confess secrets and make declarations of love. Voices that generate dinosaurs and wolves,mushrooms and baleen whales, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters, who just for a moment find themselves in that time and that space, ready to disappear with the evanescence of fading breath. It is only the voice that realises presence, creates worlds, weaves relationships, generates visions. On stage a few fixed elements: a carpet, microphones: a space that never changes, while time and sound move continuously.
