    World Premiere
    Vanishing Point and Scottish Ensemble

    Two of Scotland’s foremost performing groups – theatre company Vanishing Point and string orchestra Scottish Ensemble – present a co-production that sets Arvo Pärt’s masterpiece Tabula Rasa in a theatrical context, exploring the recognised role of the piece in the care of patients during their final days.

    With musicians forming an integral part of the drama, this visionary production is a life-affirming exploration of care, humanity, suffering – the uplifting power and endless importance, of art. / /
