a simple existence (and what are we fighting for)
By Phoebe Anne Taylor
“The walls are unadorned. The libraries are empty.
People have forgotten the strength of their voice…”
A satellite returns to earth in the depth of the night, and a golden record reignites a passion and innate drive to create.
What does the future look like without art? Would we recognise it if we saw it? And how does one of the key fundamental principles of being human – creativity – reassert itself, when it does not have the language and framework to allow creation?
In this new piece, North of Eight explores a future not so far from here examining the way in which art enriches our lives, giving us meaning and connection to our past, present and where we want to be.
“What happens when the human artist is removed from the arts process entirely?”
a simple existence (and what are we fighting for). Devised by North of Eight. Original concept by Phoebe Anne Taylor. Directed by Phoebe Anne Taylor. Presented by North of Eight. Venue TBC.
