The Road (Ճանապարհ) — a dreamlike jazz piece on isolation and connection



Set in a liminal desert space, The Road (Ճանապարհ) contemplates how it feels to be in the world at this moment via overlapping narratives of isolation and connection. The stories of five sets of characters, suspended in time and space, unfold and collide on the very same road.

“Each of the five narratives in our work are centred around decisive moments in people’s lives; from this point forward these characters will be forever changed as they undergo some sort of renewal, redemption or transcendence,” says director Charlotte Mungomery. “We were also interested in the conceptual and almost existential notion of a road and humanity’s attempt to control the uncontrollable and tame the untameable.”

Music by Zela Margossian Quintet
