Landscape (1989)

  • Old Fire Station Theatre OX1 2AQ (map)

As of 2018, The Doomsday Clock is the closest it’s ever been to midnight. In an age of climate change and nuclear anxiety, we like to tell stories about apocalypse, disaster, endings. This isn’t quite one of those stories.

Combining text, choreography and music, Landscape (1989) is a slow zoom-in on an Oregon National Park and the people passing through. Emergency Chorus present a meditation on forgotten histories and lost futures.

Warning: anyone with a mushroom allergy should ask Box Office for more information.

Ages 12+. £10. In the Old Fire Station Theatre.

'Beguiling and enchanting work.' - The Guardian

Well, that’s settled then: @emergencychorus are officially my favourite makers of anything anywhere. ‘Landscape (1989)’ @newdiorama is so beautiful I could hardly breathe. I absolutely adore the way they hold things — not least each other.” - Tweet from Chris Goode (@beescope), writer and director

"rewarding and fascinating and eerily beautiful" - Darker Neon

Emergency Chorus

Ben and Clara make live performance which engages with the contemporary moment with energy and playfulness. We like loud music, costume changes and getting sweaty.
