Trial of the Mariner
Hoxton Hall, East London 2011

A multimedia mix of action, puppetry, circus and live junk music that responds to the destruction of our oceans and its effect on climate change. Set in 2111, a group of desperate sailors embark on the Ship of Fools across now radioactive oceans. Lost at sea and mad with cabin fever, they arrive at the Plastic Continent spinning in the North Pacific Ocean gyre, where the unhinged mariners’ adventures come to life around the audience. A Lotos Collective production.
