Landscape Orchestra seeks a musical answer to the question of how we can depict departure, travel, and arrival. The production visits the landscapes that we traverse on our way to different and better places. A series of portraits shows people for whom the world is difficult but not necessarily less poetic. In an increasingly mobile and more technological world, bringing people closer together can be a challenge, and solace a luxury. Landscape Orchestra asks us to reflect on the perspectives from which we look at each other and the expectations we have of each other.
