A thrilling new show inspired by the double survival story of Juliane Koepcke.
In their spellbinding combination of physical theatre, puppetry and projection, TheatreGoose brings the Amazon rainforest to the vaults beneath our very own corporate jungle.
Trapped in the Peruvian rainforest, having miraculously survived a plane crash and a fall of 3000ft, Juliane is utterly alone and hopelessly lost. But she’s the daughter of two Amazon zoologists. She knows what to do.
Join Juliane in this vital exploration of our fractured relationship with the natural world as she faces the unforgiving landscapes of the rainforest and her mind. Whilst she bargains for her life with the ecosystem holding her captive, she discovers loneliness, loss, and the strength of humility in the face of insurmountable danger.
TheatreGoose is an emerging company with a distinctive physical and visual style, creating work that interrogates humanity's shared reality, led by writer and director, Emma Howlett. Her Green Hell is TheatreGoose's professional debut.
