An Instructional Performance

We have visitors and they have news to tell! Join us for an evening discussion with our comrades from somewhere further away in time (but not too far), about the future they won and what they did to get there.

[How] We Got the Earth is a live work of speculative fiction. Our panel of time travellers has returned from a better place and time. But how did they get there in the first place? And what’s it like? Our friends from the future will describe the world they’ve helped to create, chronicle the means and methods of reaching this future-perfect time, and suggest strategies that can help us embark on this journey of transformation and temporal exploration together.

This performance will serve to inaugurate our series of launch events for our 2020 programme We Only Want The Earth, and to introduce its aims and ambitions, collaborators and accomplices. Encompassing dialogue and performance the evening will allow for attendees to pose their questions about how we got the earth to our panel of visitors from the future.
