Continuum’s largest premiere project to date: A one-act chamber opera in concert format.

In a one-room boutique, a mysterious connection between three characters comes to light. The evocative sound world of Rodney Sharman, masterfully crafted using both early and modern instruments, comes together with libretto of long-time collaborator Atom Egoyan to form a compelling drama of tangled ties and revelations. As clothes are folded, the characters’ lives unfold in unexpected ways.

Runtime: Approx. 1hr 15min without intermission
