Mapping my 30-year standard normal*
An intimate performance exploring landscapes of memory and humanity’s relationship with the earth, Constellations is designed for small audiences of up to 6 people. Through a re-imagining of the performance space in miniature, it investigates themes of nostalgia and memory in relation to the multiple scales of environmental crisis. Numerous timelines intertwine as the piece examines humanity’s power to both destroy and be destroyed, and our capacity to care for a world within which we are totally enmeshed.
*30 years is the standard reference period for calculating climate normals and identifying variations in global temperature (WNO, 2021).
Tobi King Bakare and this theatre deserve a shout-out for such a young, diverse audience. There is so much talk about audiences being full of over 60s and why, why can’t theatres get the crowds in to reflect society in general? Well, I’m happy to say that on a rainy Thursday evening, the theatre was completely full.
