Manipulate 2020

Summerhall - Anatomy Lecture Theatre

The odds of perishing in a commercial plane accident are 29.4 million to one. Reassuring. Except if you’re the one. As emergency masks plummet, engines sequel and hand baggage flies from the overhead bins, two strangers hold hands. Scared and breathless, their lives flash past as they face their final moments together.

Exploring themes of luck and choice, fate and coincidence and above all what it means to connect with someone, this work-in-progress, created by one of Scotland’s leading theatre companies, is a fantasy table-top exploration where time is turned upside down and all the things that matter start to make sense.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A.
