Synopsis
 
This tragicomic, site-specific promenade performance - part theatre, part ritual - was presented at the Brighton Festival and Green Man Festival.

The performance featured visual arts, live music and puppetry in the staging of the funerals of 'Endlings', the last of an extinct species. Audiences heard extinction stories, glimpsed those implicated in each loss, and explored the mysterious 'Graveyard for Lost Species', from its shrines to its unsettling dark spaces.

At the Green Man Festival, participants created a shrine for an extinct species from recycled and discarded materials from the festival site for a procession in the festival parade.

The project was a 2011 TippingPoint commission and explored the loss of species, places and cultures resulting from human interventions, including the threat to biodiversity from climate change.
