In the meantime, here is a promo video of RUCKUS ensemble's last feature-length production, Speed of Life, in collaboration with Epic Arts in Cambodia. This was co-directed by Alison Richardson and Dean Walsh in collaboration with the cast and key artistic team. 

 

Life at city speed is never easy…for some it is almost impossible. How might you navigate our modern culture when you are unable to process information like most around you? How do you learn to adapt? Could tuning into other people who share a similar nature hold the clues? Does nature itself show you the way? Perhaps the answers are buried in the sands of southern Cambodia? Or scattered in the stars above?
