DINOMANIA
a new collaboration with Kandinsky Theatre.   

165 million years ago, an iguanodon is killed in the heart of a rainforest. Time passes, the rainforest becomes the South Downs,
and every part of the iguanodon degrades and disappears - except one tooth.

197 years ago, in safe, affluent 1820s Sussex, a country doctor finds the tooth.
But where does it fit in the story of an earth created by God just 6,000 years ago?

Dinomania is a story of scientific endeavour, bitter rivalry and terrible lizards.

 

at The New Diorama from 19th February 2019.

TRAP STREET
Kandinsky Theatre at Schaubühne FIND 2019 Festival.   

Originally created for The New Diorama in 2018

Exploring the dilapidated remains of a 1960s high-rise in London and the circumstances that have brought it to ruin.
Alongside an individual family drama, the excavation of its history and its stories brings to light the panorama of a social process:
the utopian ideas, decay and neo-liberal gutting of the British social system. 

 at The Schaubühne for The Festival of International New Drama in April 2019.

THERE IS A LIGHT THAT NEVER GOES OUT:
SCENES FROM THE LUDDITE REBELLION
a new collaboration with Kandinsky Theatre and The Royal Exchange.

The Industrial Revolution was the original Northern Powerhouse, but not everyone bought into the future it promised.
In mills and factories across England, angry workers smashed the new machines that threatened their way of life.
These workers – the Luddites – were written off as enemies of progress. But their 19th-century complaint,
that bosses were using technology as an excuse to beat down the workers, resonates now more strongly than ever.

Using 21st-century artefacts and technology,
this vivid and passionate production shows how the Luddites helped inspire the birth of Manchester’s radical political identity
– and how their long-misunderstood protests remain massively relevant today.

 

A Royal Exchange Theatre Production in association with Kandinsky
From 25th July 2019.
