If you can believe it, it is millennia in the future. You are walking amongst ancient ruins. A koel calls. You hear ghosts. A Musician says his goodbyes. A Lover's heart breaks. These are the psychic traces of a city long gone.
A Bird Calls You To Moscow is an audio drama to be experienced on the move. Across three episodes and accompanied by the piano music of Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky, you are invited to see, hear and feel, as the role requires, and simply walk with yourself.
