Dear Einstein


By imitating the dog with composer James Hamilton

Dear Albert Einstein… tell me the things you know.

A man wakes in the night with a million questions swirling in his head, struggling to find a path through the landscape of life. He searches for answers and ponders on the state of things until he turns his attention, and his questions, to a bigger brain than his own… to Albert Einstein!

In an elegy to a great scientific mind, we playfully ask some of the BIG questions about life’s ups and downs. Combining their trademark video design, an original score by James Hamilton and live performance with local singers, Lancaster’s own imitating the dog return to Light Up Lancaster with another epic piece.

With thanks to Encounter Voices.
