A mix of radio play and performance art, FOCUS is about sound and silence, stillness and movement. A student struggles to follow a lecture, contending with distractions, thoughts, emotions, and the overstimulation that comes with trying to drown out the rest of the world. There's a kind of mystery about the light, sound, repetition, and geography of FOCUS, that leaves us wondering can there ever be, just a moment of silence? Will things ever come into focus?
