Found is a compelling, emotionally charged and delicate performance, full of humanity and sprinkled with humour.
Bold, beautiful and charged, Found is driven by movement and live music with an allusive sense of narrative supported by text and video image. The threads of this narrative are drawn from a found letter. You find a letter. It’s not yours. Do you read it?
As this fractured story unfolds, one person's reality is deeply affected by a life imagined.
