Description

In the late 1800s, against a period of social and economic inequality, novelists wrote books about utopian societies where our lives are radically different. Today, against a period of social and economic inequality, we are going to try to do the same thing. We are going to take you into the future. Anorak return to the fringe with their new show, an exploration into how we imagine the future and what we want it to be. A utopian narrative for our uncertain, unstable times.

Get yourself off the beaten track to see this! An optimistic yet perfectly plausible vision of a possible future, this short play is surprisingly immersive (for its length), and highly compelling. Just perfect!

A minimal show making good use of the bare space of Zoo Playground, like Kepler’s Somnium it takes the form of a dream journey, the narrator falling asleep for a thousand years to awaken in the year 3019, overwhelmed by a sadness for all that is lost and a wonder for all that has been made – or remade, to be more precise.
