SCORCHED EARTH: Performance Gallery Archive

A taste of the products of our two-week research & development workshop with eight actors (Simon Kunz, Fraser James, Beth Cooke, Victoria Latham Kelly, Andy Cheung, Matthew Huggett, Minjeong Kim, and Jayne Dickinson), playwright Che Walker, director David Tucker, composer Anoushka Lucas, movement consultant Bonnie Oddie, and drug policy/history consultants Betsy Thom and Lisa Luger.
From this workshop Che wrote ‘Scorched Earth’, a play which ranges from the 17th Century Opium Wars to the first mass production of Heroin at Bayer Pharmaceuticals in the 19th Century, all the way to broken families in today’s London, looking at the long-ranging effects that this powerful narcotic has had on different generations, nations and individuals.

These pictures are from the SCORCHED EARTH production, which was performed in 2012.
