In 1985, a fissure formed at England’s centre and split the north from the south. A real gap, descending into an abyss of bottomless depth. In the north, cut off, things began to stir.

After some shocking news, a young man embarks on an extraordinary, surreal journey from the lights of the City back to where it all began: the dark and bloody heart of the north. There monsters lurk and a reckoning waits. In this acclaimed solo show, highly physical storytelling and animation combine in a grotesque roadtrip through a world bent out of shape.

“Stunningly immersive… a myth of staggering beauty.”
