The war is over: there is peace in our time. In a bunker underneath Edinburgh, Ciaran and Kit, two hapless but well-meaning bureaucrats, invite you on a crash course in the art of duckpond maintenance featuring storytelling, music and duck-related propaganda. Duckpond tells a story of environmentalism, community, and resilience in the aftermath of crisis. It features an original soundscape drawn from 20th century British folk and electronic music, leading you through a sequence of memories, myths and recorded fragments to rebuild the bond between people and their local duckponds.
