A requiem for our digital age - Chinese poet Xu Lizhi writes about life making electronic parts on an assembly line in Shenzhen, China. Powerful, haunting and gut wrenching, Xu’s words give voice to millions of workers around the globe whose existence is often forgotten. The UK premiere of this multimedia song cycle by former music director of La La La Human Steps and the composer of Mr. Shi and His Lover and Picnic in the Cemetery pays tribute to Xu Lizhi and countless others whose unseen struggles provide the amenities of our digital lives.
