Across Syria, many gardens conceal the dead bodies of activists and protesters who took to the streets during the early periods of the uprising.

As much an art installation as it is theatre, Gardens Speak depicts the human cost of the war by acquainting us with the life and death of 10 ordinary yet remarkable people who were buried in Syrian gardens.

Each story has been carefully constructed with the friends and family members of the deceased to retell their stories as they themselves may have recounted it.

A unique, unforgettable, interactive and immersive experience.

Limited capacity of 10 per show.

Age suitability: 14+
