The Man Who Was Music

Our second play for this year's Short+Sweet is the story of a composer who, at his final concert, reminisces on how he came to be a musician.

Part of Wildcards week 2, it's on at the Kilachand theatre, Ductac, Mall of the Emirates on Saturday the 15th of February, 2014. There are two shows at 3 p.m & 8 p.m.

Tickets are available online at TimeOut and also at the venue.

The following excerpt from T.S. Eliot's The Dry Salvages, to me, best evokes the play's intent and scope:

"For most of us, there is only the unattended
Moment, the moment in and out of time,
The distraction fit, lost in a shaft of sunlight,
The wild thyme unseen, or the winter lightning
Or the waterfall, or music heard so deeply
That it is not heard at all, but...

You are the music
While the music lasts."
