Eight improvising actors and singers use their voices to create music to inform improvised scene work. Stories flow out of music flows into story flows into music, and so on, all with the intention to create an improvised performance of poetry, magic, fun and emotion. This is more than just musical improv. This is a journey into life, its stories and its sounds.
