“From Out a Darker Sea” conveys our experience of a multi-visit residency in the industrial north of England. Former mining towns are searching for a new identity and a way forward in the globalized present, while never forgetting the past.
We are touring the show in sacred spaces around the UK during November and December. Other than London, all of the locations were chosen because of their connection to industry.
Adam wrote about our process in The Big Issue.
See below for further dates.
The Guardian wrote a lovely review:
“…a haunting and often deeply moving requiem for an industry and its people.”
The project is sponsored by Forma, with funding from many partners. Learn more on Forma’s website.
