‘The thin line separating my being and the rainforest is beginning to blur.’

Trapped in the Peruvian rainforest, having survived a plane crash and a fall of 10,000 feet, seventeen-year-old Juliane is utterly alone and hopelessly lost. But she’s the daughter of two Amazon zoologists – she knows what to do.

Her Green Hell reimagines the true survival story of Juliane Koepcke in this odyssey of vivid storytelling with a captivating combination of physical theatre and puppetry. Interrogating our fractured relationship with nature, Juliane’s story reveals the strength of humility in the face of insurmountable danger and is as much about the rainforest’s struggle to survive, as it is Juliane’s.

Debuting at VAULT Festival, Her Green Hell transferred for a critically acclaimed run at Summerhall at the Edinburgh Fringe 2023, where it was longlisted for the BBC Popcorn New Writing Award. Ahead of a national tour this year, it has been developed in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth.

 “So compelling is her performance – and so fascinating is the story – that we’re gripped from start to finish.”

The Scotsman

 

“…a spellbinding account of loss, humility and resilience.”

Fest Mag

“…not a million miles away from Simon McBurney’s seminal Complicité show The Encounter…that is one hell of a compliment.

…like [Complicité’s] The Encounter, Her Green Hell deliriously spirals from straightforward storytelling into something deeper, darker and weirder.”
