Current Production: The Heart of Things

A stressed-out fisher hangs himself from his mast. He wants attention for his problems, but no-one knows what to do. The composer for The Heart of Things takes the musicality of fisher's voices into a full virtual musical score to speak about a suicide in the community vernacular.
