If Light Appears is a collaboration between Third Thread’s core company and young ensemble. It is a window into our world, our way of being; with ourselves, with each other, with you. Working on a long-term exploration of Greek poet Sappho, one of the few female poets known from antiquity. We are equally curious about the words we have- which speak of love, desire, old age, shame and time- as we are about the spaces between the words. Layering multiple artistic elements, our company aims to create work that offers space for our audience: space to think, space to feel, space to unpack. In this unknown ephemeral space, we allow the work to unfold in real time in direct relationship to our audience; a process of collective discovery.
