The Protestant Reformation in Britain began in 1534. It brought many changes with it, ones that were at their most apparent in churches. For a period of more than a century, no-one attending a service could be sure of a settled building or a settled order. Would there be icons on the walls? Would they have been damaged? Would there be words in their place? Would there be glass in the windows?
It was a period in which the image – the icon – was displaced by the word. It was also a period in which the new order set out by one monarch could be overturned by next.
The production aims to imprint a whole realm’s power on the walls of a small building; and so to illuminate the life within one mind and many minds.
This is a dance production by a company of twenty-one. The audience is also limited to the same number! You will be on your feet more often than not and amongst the performers. Sensible shoes are advised.

Lighting: Becky Mitchell
The soundtrack is from the album “The Drift” by Scott Walker
