MAR is a five-star performance based on two true and local stories. One is a tale of tragedy, the other a tale of an epic rescue operation, under the harshest of circumstances.

The world of the performance is a dreamlike one. where both stories come alive in one space, disconnected from the conventional time and space relationship.

in MAR the audience is presented with real personal stories and actual recordings from radio communications during one of  the accidents.
