Polaris explores the violence in language across a 75 million year period, and features a live sound score created by the cast. #StrongerThanFear
Following a tough 2016 Holly&Ted explore the effect of violent language in casual conversations, on a journey that takes them back 75 million years, into outer space and back to school.
Watched over by the glittering eyes of Polaris, The Fixed Star, this story will transport you to worlds that are so different and not-so-different from our own and cast an objective, omniscient gaze over the universe and all that the star’s light has touched, Including Dinosaurs, spacewomen and a few characters a little closer to home too...
Polaris is a reaction to violent language in everyday life, put under the microscope and made fantastic and features a unique ever-changing soundscape created live on stage by the performers utilising a timeless and eccentric array of found instrumentation.
There will be a post show discussion on Tue 6 Feb with YouTuber Leena Normington.
Age Guidance: 16+
