Sometimes you have to keep your head down to stay alive.
This is a show about playing the cello in the darkest hour, and returning to the site of the fire, and keeping your head down to stay alive. This is a show about what happens when the sun goes down, and when you get lost in the mall, and when you pick up the phone because you have nowhere left to turn.
This is a show about the terrible and the beautiful. This is a show about survival.
