A Thousand Shards of Glass by Jane Packman Company
A surround-sound action-adventure which happens mostly in your head…
In a diminished world of screens and virtual-reality, join our resistance heroine as she sets out on a mission to break some glass and change the world.
Inspired by graphic novels and insurrectionist texts, A Thousand Shards of Glass combines an extraordinary solo performance, evocative sound design and a rich rhythmic text, to take you into a fantastical world. Be prepared for time travel, for exotic climates… and to find yourself becoming complicit in a conspiracy
“…the tale that Ellinson spins takes place in the vast landscape of our imaginations. Seated in our circle of chairs, gazing across at one another, the audience configuration is reminiscent of the campfire – a forum for fantastical stories since stories began.” Catherine Love, Exeunt
