Site-specific landscape theatre at Godrevy, Hayle, where we rehearsed and performed 15 performances to audiences of 100 a night. The audience moved about the site as the narrative was revealed.
Based around the Red River which used to flow red from mine waste, the production dwelt on the exploitation of natural resources and the cost to local populations who could no longer live in harmony with their environment. A large team of young volunteers worked alongside professionals to create the sculptural input and the chorus. We made imaginative use of waste and discarded materials, much of which was collected on the beach.
This was a collaboration with British Trust for Conservation Volunteers and The Tate Gallery, St. Ives.
