A BRIDGE BY A CLIFF

 

 

I’ve collaborated with Apsis Lab on an interdisciplinary performance premiering at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Written by Joana Raio, A Bridge by a Cliff uses film, music, poetry and dance to create a multi-sensory portrayal of the bitter-sweetness of lost love. The show runs from Monday 21st to Sunday 27th August. Tickets available here.
