Two soldiers caught in a loop, relive memories of the battlefield. From sunrise to sunset these lost souls eternally play out a tale of friendship and loss, haunted by the tragedy of war and the promise of what could have been.

Conceived by director Natalie-Anne Downs, featuring choreography and performances by BalletBoyz member and Sadler’s Wells Young Associate Dominic Rocca and Christopher Thomas.
