A Dance Down the Dark Mountain

Immersive theatre show and conversation at Unfix Festival, Glasgow

We are delighted to have been invited to take part in the Unfix theatre festival in Glasgow thismonth.  On 29th and 31st March Charlotte Du Cann and Dougie Strang will be  presenting a double bill of performance/workshops and a ‘conversation in the dark’,  based on their dramaturgical work with Dark Mountain and the Kairos Collective.

DOUBLE BILL:  The Dance Down the Dark Mountain

The Red Thread follows the ancient Minoaan story of Ariadne and the Labyrinth, piecing together the shards of a more potent myth. What lies underneath this prison? Who is the Minotaur? How can the embodiment of this mystery help us deconstruct the maze of our own civilisation and liberate our future selves? Part performance, part presentation, part interactive storytelling, this session explores how we might step into the labyrinth to discover a way out of our present predicament.

A Dance Called the Anthropocene is an immersive theatre experience. It’s an exploration through movement and sound of our attitudes towards ecological crisis. Together we will consider what it feels like, in our bodies, to be in denial, to be angry; to wish for solutions or despair at the lack of them. Together we’ll find a way to dance in the Anthropocene.

DISCUSSION : Conversation at the End of the World (As We Know It) The Dark Mountain Project invites you to take part in a conversation about what happens when we stop pretending everything is fine and start to question the stories we live by. When everything is unravelling, what are those stories that still have meaning and value? What matters to us, in our own lives, and what truths might we share if we knew the world were ending?


UNFIX Festival brings a three-day multi-artform event responding to climate change and the challenges of the 21st century through the lens of social, cultural, political, environmental and personal transformation.  Now in its fourth year, UNFIX seeks to contribute to the waking up of the human species in an age of ecological crisis, massive inequality and crazy consumerism. Is the path we’re on really fixed?
