Instrumental Journey follows the journey of Noa and Onda, who are forced to flee their home and overcome obstacles en route with the few instruments they are able to save from their repair shop. Incorporating both digital and live instruments, this staged reading shares the story of how music has developed across place and time, in parallel with a story of displacement and searching for refuge in a new home.
