“I wonder if there is an exact moment
When I gave up the idea of permanence.”

The Scent of a Thousand Rains by Damon Falke is a love story. A man (Ryan Childers) finds himself alone in an apartment in Budapest. He peers from the window to discover a woman (Tana Bachman-Bland) standing on her balcony. Their unlikely connection sends him on a journey through his memories to reckon with the places and people that have ordered his life. A literary and musical exploration of a life lived in pursuit, the show suggests that perhaps in a life of transience and loss, love and imagination are the only things that remain to us and of us.

The Scent of a Thousand Rains, directed by Charles M Pepiton with music composed and arranged by Tana Bachman-Bland, is a performance piece in verse for an actor and a violinist. It sits in the ancient tradition of solo versed performance with live music that connects us to Homer and the oldest forms of live theatre in the Western tradition.
