Current Location - Fellswoop Theatre

Presented by Tobacco Theatre at Trinity

Current Location

-Written by Toshiki Okada

Adapted by the company

Having presented FellSwoop Theatre’s fantastic Belleville Rendez-vous and Ablutions in the last few years, we’re delighted to present their brilliantly successful Current Location at Trinity, Bristol this season.

Three women stand on a cliff-edge overlooking their village; a village which is soon to disappear.  “Sometimes we need to do things like this; we need to step away from our daily lives, and look at them from a distance.”

Current Location was originally written by Japanese playwright Toshiki Okada in the direct aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011. Set in the intimacy of a choir rehearsal room, an all-female cast presents this immersive piece of theatre with live music by Ben Osborn, which explores how rumour and the fears associated with climate change disrupts families, friends and communities.

Returning from its UK tour and sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival 2014, the award-winning FellSwoop Theatre (Ablutions, Belleville Rendez-vous) present Current Location; an allegorical response to the ongoing and ever-increasing number of ecological disasters. A site specific production, developed specifically for Trinity Centre, Current Location will immerse and enlighten audiences in the significant issues and questions surrounding climate change.

“Quietly gripping and thoroughly unsettling, this piece climbs inside you, like the best examples of sci-fi”.  Wildfire / Exeunt

“Will haunt you long after you leave the theatre” A Younger Theatre

“Current Location is that rarest of things: a bold and experimental play that manages to tell a complex and emotional story. It’s a must-see and one of the best plays of the festival” Fringe Madrid
