Life from Light

Toni Castells


Thursday 7 August & Friday 8 August, 2014

Kings Place Hall One

Suitable for adults only



Life from Light is a unique live experience that could well have been a collaboration between Sigur Ršs and Puccini. Exploring what it means to be human on planet earth on the 21st century: plastic surgery, sex, love, spirituality and human conflict, it wonders about the nature of human beings and the question of their ultimate origin.
