Scottish Ensemble and Untitled Projects present
in association with Perth Theatre at Horsecross Arts
Through song, music and words, we are told the extraordinary story of a transplanted heart, written by Pamela Carter. Through the voices of both giver and receiver, the journey of the heart from one life to another is teased open, inviting the audience into a strange, intense world of complex emotion and unexpected metaphor.
The production features bespoke new score by highly lauded Icelandic composer/producer Valgeir Sigurðsson. Creating music that swoops beneath the surface of our expectations, Sigurðsson melds contemporary classical and enigmatic electronica to create new soundworlds that are at once minimal and complex, beautiful and absorbing. Performing alongside two solo singers, Scottish Ensemble musicians become a living, breathing element of the on-stage world; at once soundtrack, chorus and curious witnesses to the unfolding drama.
