The Band At The End Of The World!
Throughout July & August 2015, we have been collaborating with a rich pool of artists to research and develop the concepts and ideas that will form the foundations of this, our second mid-scale production.
This process culminated in 4 days of showings in Newbury and at Lytham festival of stories, enabling us to road test our ideas at a prototype stage, in front of live public audiences before we create the full version of this show in 2018. Watch this video to see what we've been up to.
Arriving in a cloud of raucous brass heavy music, driving their home made, water spurting, flaming and smoking battle contraption. Existing within their very own miniature apocalyptic microclimate.
Once they were ordinary citizens, just like all of you, happy and content with their lot. Until they started to notice the signs, saw the light and formed the Swindon division of the Aurora Storm Brigade.
These idiots are convinced that the inventible end of the world is upon us, maybe today, maybe right here, maybe right now!
There mission? To educate you as to what to expect when we move into the next phase, the switch over into the new dawn and into the next frequency of consciousness. Oh, and to elect a new local area leader.
