Within her research and workshop laboratories, Rebecca decided to pursue mime and physical performance coupled with a thick, atmospheric audio score to transport audiences to another world.

So, a little bit of retro rewind, groups of friends, going on an adventure, finding something hidden and maybe paranormal..."
