Music: Giorgio Battistelli

Words: Sarah Woods


WAKE starts with the myth of Lazarus. Brought back from the dead, he’s unable to speak. Persecuted, he begins a perilous journey in a boat with no oars.

We all have moments in life when everything changes. Moments that turn the world upside down.  

He’s not alone with his experience.

Giorgio Battistelli's music guides us through a Sea of Humanity where words alone fail.

Are you ready to come back........?
