I saw the highlights video for Hōp on YouTube and it was amazing - is there anywhere I can find out more about the story/concept behind the show? The dialogue that was spoken over top of that video was really wonderful and I'd love to know more! :)
There were lots of influences that the director, Struan Leslie, drew on - but this section of the Alexander Pope poem ‘Essay on Man’ was a key one:
Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never is, but always to be blessed:
The soul, uneasy and confined from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.
You can look at more posts, photos etc from Hōp here.
