C-Venues - Adam House, Chambers Street, 16-24th August 2013 at 12:45 (1hr) Max arrives home to a surprise birthday party. His pregnant wife Vendela has arranged a gathering and his friends are all dressed up as characters from the circus. Max struggles to find a way to tell them some devastating news. Awake is a simple story of love, loss and mortality, told using powerful live music inspired by traditional gypsy, folk and Eastern European songs, beautiful aerial circus and physical theatre. 'Christopher Sivertsen and Awake Projects have composed a dance of death with the same beautiful melancholy as Lou Reed's twilight ballad Perfect Day' (Vestmanlands Läns Tidning , Sweden).
