“Award-winning FellSwoop Theatre present an allegorical response to ecological disaster”





FellSwoop Theatre


Originally written by Japanese playwright Toshiki Okada in the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Current Location explores how the rumours and fears of ecological change disrupt families, friends and communities. FellSwoop's adaptation, set in the intimacy of a choir rehearsal room, uses an all-female cast to present an immersive blend of theatre and live music.

Three women stand on a cliff-edge overlooking their village; a village which is soon to disappear. Award-winning FellSwoop Theatre (Ablutions, Belleville Rendez-vous) present Current Location: an allegorical response to ecological disaster. The piece follows these women’s reactions to the arrival of a sinister blue cloud over their village and the terrifying sense of foreboding which accompanies its arrival.
