Anything That Gives Off Light by Jessica Almasy, Davey Anderson, Fraser Ayres, Rachel Chavkin, Brian Ferguson & Sandy Grierson

Every light casts a shadow, every fire ends in dust.

In a pub at the end of the road, an American woman drinks alone, trying to forget the home she left behind in West Virginia.

Two old Scottish friends, one of whom left for London long ago, wrestle with a fresh grief and a festering sense of betrayal.

The three collide and set off on an increasingly blurry journey through the Highlands and across the seas, digging down into layers of national mythology, and bringing to the surface memories of migrations forced and chosen.

Anything That Gives Off Light features a throbbing score by award-winning duo The Bengsons that mixes the Scottish-American folk tradition with stomping punk and the TEAM's trademark athletic performance style.
