Coffee Cantata is a 25 minute ‘tabletop’ performance where music and a chorus of conversations interact to explore the hidden thoughts that echo in our minds.
The audience, furnished with coffee, sit at café tables. A pianist begins, her music reflecting her life’s pivotal conversations. Actors join the tables and through interacting with the audience and responding to the music, recreate crucial conversations. They might become high-school kids sharing a confidence, family members arguing over a will or friends reliving a great night out. The conversations are short and fascinating, exciting and tragic, poignant and humorous.
