The Street Theatre 2012
Kabir, Songs of a Weaver, and Chekhova, Remembering Anton, two solo works ruminating on the end of life. Kabir, a 14th century Indian mystic reflects as he ascends a mountain in his funeral cart. Maria Chekhova remembers her brother Anton from inside a museum she has maintained in his memory.
Lighting for To Silence was minimalistic and often single source, dropping in and out as elusively as memories. A cool-toned colour palette of lavenders and blues (the warmest colour used was a low saturate green) lent a night-time feeling as both characters approached eternal silence.
