In association with the Dark Mountain Project...
the big room invites you to join us on 30th November for an immersive day (and night) of stories yet to be told...
Conversations in the Dark
with Dougie Strang and Charlotte du Cann
In a time of social and environmental unravelling how do we create a community that encourages the sustainability and resilience required to meet the dissolution of the old narratives and with those narratives the world we live in?
In an adventure that takes us into the more-than-human world, we invite you to explore community through the perspective of the other.
Charlotte Du Cann and Dougie Strang are both writers and performers, whose work explores cultural resilience, myth, and our relationship to the more-than-human world. They are core members of the Dark Mountain Project.
