Ephemeral Ensemble presents
17th - 22nd June
On stage a mask, offstage the truth.
What appears to be light and entertaining, can be dark and lonely behind the curtains. In a universe, where theatre is life and life is a dream we find two performers, Harley and Pedro.They do whatever they can to help each other through their show night after night.
Ephemeral Ensemble combines the skilled physicality of the performers, playful stage craft and original music to invite you to take a look behind the curtain to loneliness and depression in a sensitive and timely exploration of suicide.
