Theatre Royal Plymouth presents this darkly funny, life-affirming show which is a bold experiment in eco theatre-making.
“The difference between death and extinction is this: death is to cease to exist. Extinction is to extinguish. I think of death as individual. Extinction is collective.”
This innovative one woman show takes us on a life-changing journey to confront the urgent ecological disaster that is unfolding around us. Part ritual, part battle cry, and powered entirely by bicycles, this fiercely feminist off-grid production is a moving exploration of what it means to be human in an era of man-made extinction.
Sharing learning from Europe, Katie Mitchell and Headlong present an innovative touring model, the first of its kind in the UK, which sees a play tour, while the people and materials do not.
Theatre Royal Plymouth hosts part of this journey wherein each city a blueprint of the show will be uniquely brought to life by local teams, in a daring zero-travel tour. It forms part of a ground-breaking international experiment in reimagining theatre in a climate crisis.
Headlong will partner with and stage the play at The Barbican London, Belgrade Theatre Coventry, Theatre Royal Plymouth, Live Theatre Newcastle, New Vic Newcastle-under-Lyme, and York Theatre Royal.
