Other art forms/ mediums that resonate

Function- A container for the event because it begins and ends with music, What are the musicians Rhythms? They support the story. Musicians incongruous to characters. 

What is the function of the masks and faces made to look like masks? 

The space should feel immortal
A desire to perform it outside or in the concert venue of AS220, A space for ritual 

No, but really, why should we do this play?
