An unusual and one-of-a-kind journey through Halifax - from Dean Clough to Beacon Hill - merging performance and reality.
Following the death of their goldfish, a couple embark on a quest to transform matter. As they become enmeshed within the mechanics of the universe, they are shadowed by a cluster of ghost-like film technicians who manipulate their progress.
OU’s base at Dean Clough became an eerie film studio where our travellers are seen immersed in their journey, unconscious of the paraphernalia that surrounds them.
Once the travellers reached the end of their journey the audience were transported to Beacon Hill, over looking Halifax, for a fantastically normal finale.
Electric Field was devised and written by David Wheeler, produced by IOU and delivered in Halifax, July 2009.
