Ape/Essence
  • Edinburgh Fringe

An original, devised, loose adaptation of Aldous Huxleys 1948 dystopian novel which examines a post-apocalyptic world. Employing surreal imagery of a satirised human society incapable of holding on to decency, the production is dark and provocative, yet infused with an entertaining, comic cruelty. Ape/Essence has also been entered into the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival in the US. It reflects the global anxiety of what kind of future we might be facing when power and purpose are appropriated by those for whom reality and fact are manipulated or even disposed.
