Solstånd: a devised slow tempo play in the style of Japanese theatre artist Shogo Ohta. The winter solstice is a much-needed celebration of light in the darkness. Slow tempo, originated by Japanese director Shogo Ohta, offers a microscopic look at human behavior. solstånd, devised entirely by the performers, will explore a love of winter and outdoors, snowfall, the comfort of wool layers, warm food and fire, and celebrate brief moments of sunlight.
