The Trial of The Mariner at the Hoxton Hall 7 May
The Trial of The Mariner , at the Hoxton Hall Theatre, in north London, from 7 to 21 May 2011.
Inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of The Snark. An interactive, multimedia performance looking at the future of our oceans.
The year is 2111, and a group of desperate sailors embark on a voyage on the Ship of Fools. Lost at sea and mad with cabin fever, they arrive at the Plastic Continent of the Pacific Ocean Gyre, where the unhinged Mariner's adventures come to life. This show incorporates elements of dance, large-scale puppetry, circus arts and live music by the Junk Orchestra, exploring the destruction of our oceans and its effect on climate change.
