In London, Michael listens carefully to a conversation recorded twenty years ago
Can he hear a third silent person on the tape?
In a small Russian town, Irina searches desperately for her missing friend, piecing together fragments from his life
From urban noise to rural emptiness, through rationalism to spirituality, from Russia to the UK, Silence is a collaboration between the celebrated theatre company Filter and RSC Associate Director David Farr
Filter create rich stories that awaken the imaginative senses of an audience and they are renowned for a distinctive theatrical style that exposes the workings of a production - video is mixed onstage, sound is produced live by a musician and the performers to create a unique, 'live chemistry' experience for audiences
Silence is a work which combines narrative impetus with astounding, original ideas and theatrical presentation
