A co-commission with Music Theatre Wales in partnership with HOME Manchester

Available online now


Created by Composer Alex Ho and Theatre Maker Elayce Ismail

A trip to the Amazon takes an unexpected turn.

Music, text and visuals combine in a poetic reflection on the world we live in.

Alex Ho and Elayce Ismail have never met in person.

Neither had used zoom before lockdown.

They now know a lot about the inside of each other’s homes: where the best signal is, what’s hanging on the back of that door just in shot, how well the sound of a reversing truck in London carries to Cambridge…

Out of this virtual meeting, and sharing of lives and ideas, came AMAZON. The making of the piece mirrors their experiences of lockdown: what started as a meditation on the suspension of time and collapse of space, became a quest for connection to the world beyond their screens and outside their windows. The result was a surprising and joyful creative collaboration that took them on a journey to the other side of the world.
