From the writer and director of the 2010 PlayCo hit Enjoy, Sonic Life… probes the everyday lives of urban adults. Everything seems comfortable – jobs, relationships. But beneath the surface runs a powerful undercurrent of longing. Sonic Life… is a quirky, dreamlike and poignant theatrical experience from some of the foremost theatre artists of the US and Japan.
