Written more than 100 years ago, Heart of Darkness is a tale of lies and brutal greed. Now re-sited in a forsaken Europe, in a world which echoes Apocalypse Now, what emerges is a tale absolutely for our time.
This bold re-telling of the Conrad classic is a visually rich, multi-layered work which fuses live performance with digital technology.
The performers enter the stage, into uncharted territory. They are adrift with a story that they know they must tell. As they wait for the turn of the tide, the story unfolds like an animated Cinemascope graphic novel on the hanging projections screens above their heads.
The heart of darkness must be found. The story is impossible to tell, but it must be told.
