Inspired by a short story from acclaimed Scottish writer Ali Smith, PICTURES OF HEAVEN was performed at Arches LIVE! theatre festival in September 2009.
The show welcomed audience members into a dark basement room filled with fading memories of loved ones on dusty shelves and in forgotten shop windows. In this space, four performers told stories of love, loss and remembrance set to a back drop of transient projected images, video and text and punctuated by live fiddle music.
