Rocks. Beats. Geological bodies. Stone circles. Copper mining. A violent, fun, loud and lyrical smash-fest, with landscape projection design from award-winning Limbic Cinema. With copper having jet-fuelled technology for the last 10,000 years, a performer and sound artist playfully duet to deep-time techno, metamorphic soundscapes and the Internet of Things. Neolithic flint tools smash stones and laptops in this wildly physical journey to the origins – and 21st century challenges – of mining, from 2018 Herald Angel winners. On previous shows: 'Beautiful, contemplative... a remarkable and urgent show' (Guardian). 'Extraordinary... moving and enlightening' (New Scientist). Get yer strata on.
