Set in a bunker, threatened by the storms of climate change, audiences take refuge with Moon Fool's international company, Moon Fool. Storm is a powerhouse of total theatre, recreating Shakespeare's The Tempest for a contemporary state of mind.
Four soloists and a twelve strong community chorus draw on original live music and choreography to lead the audience on a journey to encounter a changing world. Evoked by flickering visual landscapes and rhythmically charged new writing, this stellar collaboration of multi-skilled performers meets mix media design to conjure a white-knuckle ride of cathartic immersion, stunning spectacle and breath-taking beauty.
Lead performers: Anirudh Nair, Ezra Khan, Chris-Gerard Heyward, Alexandra Kazazou
