“A river of vehicles and people ran between us;
it was five o'clock on no particular afternoon.
How was I to know that that river was the
sad Acheron, which no one may cross twice?
Then we lost sight of each other, and a year later
you were dead. And now I search out that memory and gaze at it and think that it was false, that under the trivial farewell there lay an infinite separation.”

5pm, NO Particular Afternoon was performed at "The Space" in East London as part of the Enterprise festival.
The show is an exploration of the stories we need to tell to confront loss and the gaps that people leave in our lives. It explores the journeys of four people who have lost their way, they find themselves in a world where reality and fiction merge as they attempt to reconnect with their own life stories.
An ensemble of eight performers, using shadow play, projection and a haunting soundscape, will create a dark and brooding internal landscape in which the characters are stuck, searching for a new understanding of their stories so far. Playful and imaginative, the piece explores how the act of telling and re-telling stories enables the characters to find new perspectives and understand the necessity of allowing life’s experiences to change them.
