Date: Sunday 29th September 2019
Amidst a musical score that shifts between sensationally boisterous Eastern European folk and sparse reflective piano works, RAT tells the tale of a curious man who offers to rid a corrupt town in crisis by driving its vermin infestation away.
It questions the very nature of theatre by removing speech from the narrative, choosing instead to adopt the use of exquisite puppetry and projection to present a powerful spectacle of light and sound.
RAT brings together a host of outstanding artists working in theatre and performance, promising to be one of the most exciting experiences of 2019.
“It awakes our senses and imagination, provoking those fundamental questions of human condition” Agnieszka Blonska, Theatre Director & Senior Lecturer at Falmouth University.
“Fiercely beautiful imagery with extraordinary music and a biting political comment” Mike Shepherd, Artistic Director of Kneehigh.
Made with support from Arts Council England, Hall for Cornwall, Kneehigh, Hawkwood, Falmouth University.
Suitable for age 10+
