    You wake up
    You haven’t woken up before
    You hear a voice
    This voice
    Shivery in the salt and you
    Is this what you sound like?
    You look around
    And see what you can’t yet name
    Which you know as nothing
    You look down and…
    You appear to have tentacles?

    An immersive audio-visual experience with a branching narrative created by you: a newly awakened octopus. Begin your journey - phone light in hand - to the molten centre of the earth /or/ the cold reaches of distant space to find your missing mother.

    you wake up / octopus is an ethereal and moving exploration of identity, gender, loss and (re)discovery performed in collaboration with its audience.

    "a beautifully devised and well-written piece...a very powerful and visceral text"

    "Welcoming, inclusive, creative and life-affirming. I have learnt a lot myself in so many ways that will seep into all parts of my life. My self-confidence has massively increased"
