MAT & Purbanat Theatre present

26 July - 8 August 2021
"A brilliant piece of theatre"- Elise Evans, Radio WM
In the aftermath of war, four characters go on a strange and mysterious journey – descending underground. They are haunted by visions, and ghosts of the past. The things they have done, the things they have gone through, the things they have seen. Can they rebuild their lives?
Their journey ends in a strange encounter - and a dreamlike vision of the Earth reborn …
The production of Descent is a unique, haunting and immersive experience. It is visually stunning, combining drama, music, dance and film. Don’t miss this extraordinary, unforgettable event!

Descent will be performed in the Lampworks, a former factory building in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. The audience will move around the space, following the characters on their “journey” through different locations.
The performance lasts approximately one hour. On most days, there are two performances, at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. On Saturdays and Sundays, there are performances at 11.30am, 3pm and 7.30pm.
