In an Icy land of ruins, a human being and a polar bear are meeting in an encounter of surviving the Anthropocene Era. “An Ice Thing to Say” blends Ice installation, music and physical theatre to explore our impact on nature. Drawing on inspiration from Erich Fromm’s book ‘To Have or to Be?’ and Ecoscenography, we invite the audience into a multi sensory experience of our inner and outer icy landscapes. We attempt to challenge the idea that the human being is at the centre of the world and we attempt to construct an embodied inquire into ‘what has gone wrong?’

Vertebra Theatre

Vertebra Theatre is an award-winning ensemble of theatre makers and artists from diverse backgrounds, with a passion to create contemporary work on the principles of devised, physical and visual theatre. The team dives into the absurd and visual storytelling and seek to explore the
dynamics in themes of life and imagination, myth and science. Vertebra creates original and socially engaging writing for stage. Body and collaboration are at the core of practice and research to create artistic work that is radical, relevant, and fluid. The boundaries between physical theatre, dance, puppetry and visual arts are stretched and tested. Since its founding year in 2013, the company collaborated with various theatres (ex. Little Angel Theatre, Nottingham Playhouse, etc), European and International Festivals (Voila Europe, Castillo Theatre, US) and was supported by The Arts Council and other organisations. www.vertebrarts.com
