The Mourning After

5 – 12 June | Circa Theatre, Wellington

You have to lose something to gain something.

After the death of his father, Kiwi-born Shekar travels to his father’s village in the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka, to discover that a tsunami has swept away the village – all that remains are the stories and those left behind. As Shekar sifts through the ruins in search of answers, the buried truths of his past are revealed. A theatrical collage of movement, text, sound and excavation featuring a spellbinding solo performance accompanied by a trio of musicians.

The audience are requested to remove their shoes and leave them at entrance prior to entering the theatre.

‘…a most engaging and entertaining piece of theatre’
