Akasha – Rosa Ensemble (2016)

Imagine a sea, an endless sea with ships crossing it. Each wake, every wave stirred up by a ship tells us something about the past, about that ship, when and where it sailed and in what direction it went. The waves contain information, like a memory.

“All goes onward and outward and nothing collapses” – Rosa Ensemble presents Akasha, a brief theatre of everything.

Akasha is a big bang performance. A story of lives, sung and spoken, beyond time and space. All stories, all memories, all relations to others come together in Akasha.

A mesmerizing and seductive kaleidoscope.
