Locus Amoenus

"Unsettling pin-drop stuff – an almost voyeuristic 60 minutes of mounting dramatic tension that, in an remarkably non-funereal way, raises insightful questions about the illusion of immortality and getting the most out of life."

We welcome award-winning Catalan company ATRESBANDES back to Summerhall. Locus Amoenus takes its title from a Latin term meaning ‘pleasant place’. Three strangers catch a train early one morning. What they don’t know is that one hour later, the train will be derailed and all three will be killed. During the journey we see their attempts to understand and make themselves understood on their way to their own ‘locus amoenus’.
