"She used to be everywhere, all at the same time, do you know what I mean?
And now she’s nowhere.
She was always there, that’s what I’m trying to say."
A fractured trio of sisters are pulled back together with news that turns their worlds upside down. Tensions from the past and worries about the future leave them feeling paralysed. When it feels like your world has come to a stop, how do you find a way to keep moving forward?
Soaring music by Atlantic Records artists, The Staves, combines with dynamic movement and bold new writing in this compelling, intimate reflection on grief and the invisible bonds within families. Blood Harmony is a play with songs that’ll make you want to pull your family a little closer and hold them a little tighter.
