Almost the Same (feral rehearsals for violent acts of culture) - T01407767489A figure lurks in a dark place of collapse, a theatre of dirt, an ark of humiliation. Beneath the pelt it growls, licks, pants, bites back.... Testing the dynamic between instinct & intellect, the wild & the domesticated, nature & culture, and framed by a sonic landscape, the piece examines notions of fear, matriarchal violence & the beast.Producer Bardsley_Poppy Projects. Music Andrew Poppy.

Improvement on Nature: a double act - T01329709482World Premiere. Improvemnt on Nature is based on what happens when Mary takes Charles to her bed for true science and publishes the details of their union as a series of boxed amputations. For true science. Or what she thinks is the truth of science. And because it is for science that makes it all right; because science is real and everything, everything else is just the imagination. It's the scientific enquiry of Charles Darwin incubated by the traumatised imagination of Mary Shelly. This is a meditation on the double act. How things begin and how they end, designed by the farmer and the butcher and with the Vet's daughter bucking steed just out of sight.
