Forkbeard Fantasy tackles climate change with surreal comedy, invention, film and animation in Invisible Bonfires.
On a global tour of climate change conferences, the Brittonioni Brothers explore global warming through such topics as the Evolution of the Carbon Weevil, the FairyAngel Conundrum and the coming of the new Plactic-ene Era. With special guests Mammon and Pan and live music by The Lotus Pedals, Invisible Bonfires is run by horse power and hot air.
The show tours nationally from May - June 2007 and from September 2007 - February 2008, in venues including Nottingham Playhouse, Buxton Opera House, Warwick Arts Centre, Toynbee Studios in London, The Lowry at Salford Quays, and venues in Lancaster, Devon and Bristol.
The show is based on Forkbeard Fantasy's Royal Shakespeare Company commission 'Rough Magyck' in 2006. Invisible Bonfires - The Exhibition starts touring in August 2007, and is an interactive environment for gallery spaces and museums.
