Interweaving a cappella harmony, dissonance, text, and physicality, two performers express the inner conflict that exists within one modern woman's head. (more...)

Theatre Ad Infinitum's TRANSLUNAR PARADISE Embarks On UK TourTheatre Ad Infinitum's TRANSLUNAR PARADISE Embarks On UK Tour
by BWW News Desk - Jan 5, 2018

Theatre Ad Infinitum's wordless tale of life, death and enduring love returns to tour the UK following years of extensive international touring amassing nine awards.

From beyond the grave, his wife Rose returns to help him let go. This poignant, life-affirming tale uses intricate and lifelike hand-held masks created by Madame Tussaud's senior sculptor Victoria Beaton to travel back and forth through William and Rose's relationship, wordlessly conveying a lifetime of memories in 75 minutes.
