In the aftermath of war, six 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.
It is set 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.
Don’t miss this extraordinary, unforgettable event!
A co-production with Purbanat Theatre
We are planning to stage Descent in March-April 2021. Watch this space for more details. Meanwhile, you can follow these links to find out more about the creation of the play:
