She’s on a plane. She’s 30,000 feet in the air. And on the ground, back home, an emergency is unfolding.
Lisa is on her way to a new country for her work. She has spent months learning. She’s read the books, she’s watched the YouTube videos. She knows this business.
But something has happened thousands of feet below, hundreds of miles away. A disaster. A tragedy. Something that prompts her to question what is more important to her; where she has come from? Or where she is going?
Setting the story against a multi-layered visual language involving three symbolic spaces, A Kettle of Fish is a multi-media performance experienced through an immersive and intimate sound design.
