Two bodies, suspended in darkness. A team of surgeons, poised as one. A gathered chorus, singing of life and death. And a human heart, speeding through the city…

Unfurling through song, words and a visionary live score for strings and electronics, We Are In Time follows the extraordinary journey of two strangers, one giving life, the other receiving it. Musicians are at once performers, chorus and specialist team as the drama between renowned mezzo-soprano Ruby Philogeneand vocalist Jodie Landau unfolds, and time ticks on.

The result is a thought-provoking meditation on life, and on what it means to live; on the frailty and strength of human beings, working together, with science, against nature, in search of the superhuman.

We Are In Time is a striking new theatrical production written by Pamela Carter, directed by Stewart Laing (The Salon Project, Slope, Paul Bright's Confessions of a Justified Sinner, The End of Eddy), and featuring a new score by the astonishing Icelandic composer/producer Valgeir Sigurðsson
