From the award-winning theatre ensemble that created the infamous A Clockwork Orange, Action To The Word, this ground-breaking new co-commission by Charleston Literary Festival and Rathfinny Wine Estate inhabits the transcendent world between music and language.? At just the same time that Virginia Woolf was questing for silence and peace in her writing, Benjamin Britten was composing bars of silence into his scores.? Virginia Woolf's 'The Waves', her self-termed 'playpoem', and Benjamin Britten's haunting Phantasy Quartet are married in a musical and physical exploration of the power of silence and solitude.?
'An outstanding ensemble. The pure physicality and energy is astonishing' (What's On Stage).
