This is a show about eruption and tension and release and geology and human beings and a pilot and the Righteous Brothers' Unchained Melody. It is funny and deadly serious. And it's about letting go, because sometimes you've just got to get it out.
Part performance, part lecture, part school science experiment, Volcano follows the story of a pilot's personal eruption whilst grounded during the Eyjafjallajkull ash cloud in April 2010. It uses lo-fi props to recreate gigantic events, and gigantic events to illuminate small lives with pathos and a deep sense of life's absurdity.
