Abstract

This play was an attempt to deal with the magical implications of a jug changing the course of personal and national histories

A script by Nathan Jones was performed by three monolithic sculptures by Madeline Hall which are animated with light projections by Simon Jones with CGI by Chris Boyd. The soundtrack is by granular synthesis producer Kepla. The production was directed and produced by Nathan Jones.

A highly innovative and ambitious new proposal of a "post-human theatre", folding contemporary events into a slippery, indeterminate mesh of cause and effect.

Performed at The Unity Theatre and 24 Kitchen Street.
