What Lies Beneath

"A man finds himself alone in the mountains.
The last time he was here, she was there too."


What Lies Beneath

A man has gone into the mountains alone. As the cold sets in, he confronts memories of friends and family in a series of increasingly surreal flashbacks. Romantika’s latest production is a humorous and sincere exploration of male grieving with Scandinavian folk music and physical theatre.
