A quest for survival

London Sinfonietta

The Royal Opera House




A new opera from Tansy Davies and writer Nick Drake. Starring Mark Padmore and Elaine Mitchener. Produced by the London Sinfonietta in association with The Royal Opera House.




In the cavernous industrial space of Printworks London, this new music theatre work follows a grieving father’s quest for survival in a world devastated by climate change.

We collaborated with London Sinfonietta to capture a performance of Cave in Summer 2018. The challenging and unconventional staging combined with extremes of light meant Cave was one of our most challenging projects to date.




Our performance film of Cave launched the London Sinfonietta’s new digital music channel, featuring streamed concerts, conversations with composers, podcasts and more.
