Listening to places, tracing their voices, understanding their secret life, the many souls layered over the course of time.
The stories of the places regain a more intimate sense, a closer connection to the community, to the capacity of listening, of feeling.
The scene of the theatre opens itself up to life, it surprises, it re-locates the performance to become presence here and now.
In this strange process, we discover that life is still here.

including the realization:
