Join Artemis as she dives into the visceral possibilities that our current relationship with the natural world is heading us towards.
'Set in a future where the world has drastically changed. In the pits of a disintegrating city, Artemis awakes surrounded by brick, stirring from the echoes of prayer, to witness the consequence of our actions & the destruction of nature.'
A multidisciplinary performance, set to the backdrop of an eery underground vault where the archetype of the Guardian 'Artemis' weaves together humanities story through
Haunting images of a deer skull are juxtaposed with soundscapes, spoken word and song to create a mesmeric performative ritual, offering up a journey of transformation, through the emotional landscape of grief, rage, reconnection, commitment and hope.
'Every part of the performance was beautifully crafted, with a powerful use of silence, an incredibly effective minimalism of set and one of the most evocative monologues I've experienced in years.' - Audience Feedback
