Libretto by Tom Holloway based on “The secret life of words” by Isabel Coixet
Hanna and Joseph have no words to describe the occurrences which have instantly changed their lives. The two have found an endurable way of coping with their past: they remain silent. When meeting on an inoperative oil platform - the withdrawn woman and the badly injured but laddish man - they recognise a strange connection between themselves and thereby detect the possibility to live with their traumas.
Miroslav Srnka writes a chamber opera featuring the search for interpersonal communication. For both protagonists, singing will become the only way of communication, which also points out the only possible advancement.
