About this show

There's a concert orchestra, trapped in a city during a military coup. As violence erupts around them, the orchestra become separated, lost - desperately trying to find their way back to each other. The composer is left to tell the story. The first part of this experiment in last July's Ferment saw Sleepdogs accompany a whistling bird with an invisible orchestra, and tell a 400-year-long joke. This time, the story continues, who knows where: a murder in a forest of music stands, an antique harp used for target practice, an exhausted song on a plane as it leaves the city...
