The Crossing Place

Directed by Johan Bark, and devised by the ensemble in Tallinn, Estonia.

"Three strangers meet in the middle of nowhere, in a Crossing Place far from the communications networks of civilisation.
In their meeting, seemingly with nothing in common, their only means of communication will be through their shared relationship to the emotions that sometimes visit us all late at night: Loneliness, Anxiety and Desire."


Inspired by the poems of Swedish Nobel Literature Prize Winner Tomas Tranströmer, The Crossing Place is fast-paced, visual and highly physical theatre piece, exploring the human condition and it's relationship to nature.
