In A Heartbeat
Life moves so fast, and at the same time so slowly. In a Heartbeat is a meditation on time, impermanence and mortality created through a dialogue spanning generations. Five performers, five tea-party settings and five performances taking place simultaneously.
In a Heartbeat is a new work of verbatim theatre created by Barking Spider Visual Theatre. In a Heartbeat is an immersive and playful experience for audiences. It is compelling, beautiful, delightful and moving – and delicious!
We feel the emotion and the drama and we ‘oohh’ and ‘aahh’ in all the right places
– Michael Brindley, Stage Whispers
The mood in the audience as we heard these stories went from a room full of strangers to a connected mind, and after the show when you were free to roam through the set we were chatting as if we were old friends.
– Myron My, Theatre Press
