Dark Mechanics

If humans are the main drivers of change, who or what is driving us? Poignant and funny, sinister and dirty, this bold and visceral performance promises to entertain and arrest. Taking inspiration from sources as diverse as scientist James Lovelock, singer Anohni and Pink Floyd, Firefly Arts asks some very disquieting questions of us all about what is actually going on in the world around us. A challenging and thought-provoking new work by one of Scotland's most established young companies.
