Berlin 1919: Violin prodigy and composer Sophie Carmen Friedman meets expressionist painter and war veteran Walter Gramatté. She is passionate, rude, and gifted; he is witty, emotional, and compassionate. Their love affair spans 10 years, 4 cities, artistic successes and failures, and tragedy. Nearly 100 years later, the most essential record of their time together lives in her 10 violin compositions. Never The Last fuses classical music performance, movement, and text to tell the story of two people in love and the space between them. How do you say what is impossible to say? And what if you run out of time?
