Two knackermen, a horse, a gun and a tiny metropolis full of death. Can the way we kill animals teach us anything about our own demise? With unflinching honesty and an eerily detached workmanship, two knackermen investigate the pitfalls of being high up the evolutionary chain. While dispatching the sick, lame or just plain old their own mortality is suddenly and sharply brought into focus.
Combining beautiful puppetry, new writing and documentary material, this show tells a moving and darkly comic tale about the only certainty in life – Death. How it’s become removed from us as a process. How maybe we should reclaim it.
There will be a post-show discussion with the artists.
