Synopsis
 
Deep Time Cabaret is an irreverant and complex view of how humans have used and depleted the Earth's resources.

The show, devised and directed by Bob Frith, utilises myth and absurdism. It mixes humour and dream-like imagery to create a sense of the vast time-scales involved in the creation of the landscape. In the form of a cabaret, the show links short scenes and vignettes with songs and puppetry.

The source for Deep Time Cabaret is the short film Hineingrabe, on YouTube, by the artist Tracey Holland, which looks at the Rossendale hills and quarries and their association with myth and folk-lore. The film was created for an exhibition of Holland's work at Horse and Bamboo in 2008, inspired by the landscape and geological heritage of the Rossendale landscape.
