Orzu Arts presents the UK premiere of THE TRANSIT PASSENGER
By Dulat Issabekov, Kazakhstan
The Transit Passenger explores spiritual kinship, a return to cultural roots and family values. We can only entrust our innermost thoughts and feelings to our closest relatives. “The heart of another is cloaked in darkness” is a popular Central Asian saying. But what if your closest person turns out to be a complete stranger? Then the spiritual communication will be between your past and his present.
