The World in Pictures

Somewhere, amid the frequent flurry of fireproof theatrical snow, the rag‑bag of dodgy costumes, the swirling music and the improvised scenery, there’s a bold attempt to tell the story of mankind. The World in Pictures is a challenging and compelling performance which alternates between chaotic spectacle and fragile intimacy and continues the company’s exploration of theatre as a unique space of encounter between performers and audience, touching on memory, mortality, the past, the future and the intricate detail of our contemporary lives.

High quality multi-camera performance documentation recorded at Nuffield Theatre, Lancaster, October 2006.
