THE ENDLING Strange Futures
The Coach House Theatre
Saturday 25th September
We live in a time of ‘Endlings’ – the last individual of a species – caused by human actions. You may remember Lonesome George, the last Pinta Island Tortoise, but do you remember Turgi, the last Polynesean Tree Snail? He died in a plastic box and his grave marker read “1.5 million years BC to January 1996”. In this quirky, humourous, physical performance, Strange Futures ask some difficult questions, without blaming. How can we stop viewing ourselves as separate from the rest of he living world? Should we, perhaps, be choosing to move towards a human Endling. What
if that Endling was you?
Strange Futures have consulted environmental specialists and been
working creatively on a local nature reserve to develop a physical
vocabulary that responds to the environment, with extra support from
performer/director Julian Spooner of Rhum & Clay, renowned for his
suburb physical performance (War of the Worlds, Mistero Buffo,
“Join Strange Futures, as they use their humour, quirky perspective and powerful physicality – (Scotsman 2019), to discuss climate impact and responsibility. ★★★★ London Theatres
