Irish gig theatre call to arms. Humanity ruins everything, but humanity's just a dodgy side-branch of fish evolution. Join us, and return to being fish. Fin's deep empathy for nature culminates in him thinking he's a salmon, onstage, whilst the band looks on in fishy horror. But could this kickstart a climate revolution? With live music and audience interaction, we use salmon to investigate global industrial food production, colonialism, ecological destruction, and our own place in this overwhelming timeline. Staging Change x VAULT award winner for ecologically-conscious development.
