What exists in the ‘thin places’ where the distance between the living and the non-living is blurred?
Transcending narrative, complex stories seep from the earth’s sediments, affirming the unsettling feeling of a presence existing where logically it should not. Five shapeshifting figures navigate their arrival. Evoking a compelling cycle of the Seasons. Spring/Beginning: rebirth and resilience. Summer/Freedom: memory and desire. Autumn/Resistance: trespass and dispossession. Winter/Survival: journeying and hope. Their stories of the land transcend narrative, making space for an eerie presence of the spectral past to become momentarily accessible. This Is The Land could not be more relevant to the issues of our times – ecological crisis, social inequality, and political repression of dissenting voices – whilst raising these in a highly original way.
