Have you ever had a dream so vivid that it must have been real? Who can say it isn’t? The line of reality finds itself endlessly blurred in Sunken Garden, the fourth work of acclaimed Dutch composer Michel van der Aa. A film maker’s obsession with the disappearance of a young girl leads to the discovery of a walled garden, which is the barrier between life and death. But does this place actually exist or is it all simply a stunning piece of imagination? Sunken Garden integrates video and 3D technology, immersing the audience into an inescapable world of crime and mystery. This marks the American premiere of Sunken Garden and will be a true, one-of-a-kind production like you’ve never experienced before.
