In line with Government guidance, performances of Civilisation are still scheduled to go ahead as planned.
An award-winning collaboration between Jaz Woodcock-Stewart and Morgann Runacre-Temple; Civilisation is an experiment in theatrical realism and contemporary dance.
"deeply affecting, profound, intimate yet universal" - The Crumb
A hairdryer, an oven, a letter opener. The local church, fiscal policy and Marie Kondo’s folding technique. Civilisation is about the things we’ve lost and the things we’ve built. Civilisation is a day in the life of a woman following a tragic event.
From the creator behind critically acclaimed Lands, Civilisation is a sideways look at the untheatrical reality of loss.
