The piece which is set against a backdrop of 21st century urban landscape is inspired by the songs, poems and doodles of Tagore. It explores the dualities of black and white, west and east and old and new, as city dwellers fall in and out of tune with the city and take a journey deep into its heart to reveal the soul that pulses within the city.

It premieres on August 4, 2011 at The Southwark Playhouse Vaults. Previews on 3rd June at The Rich Mix Theatre.
