I am Candy. You are Dark Fortune.

Tue 21st Mar - Sat 25th Mar 2017

Exeter.  March 2017.
The chocolate river laps at the Quayside.
The unicorns sing unheard beneath the rumble of traffic.
In the sky above us Mars is burning.
On top of the mountain the last cat alive mourns the scientists who saved him, but are long since dead.
In the city centre a crack is appearing.
Who is coming?
Which side are you on?

A live art performance made with the children of Exeter and North Devon.

Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari are members of the pioneering cult performance collective shunt.

They make wild, bold, visual performance for people who don’t really like theatre and unusual theatrical experiences for those who do. They are winners of The Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award.

Made with the Support of Arts Council, England, Beaford Arts, The Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter, Theatre Delicatessen and the children of St Leonards Primary, Montgomery Primary, West Down School, Georgeham Primary and Woolacombe School.


‘Work of this calibre is worth shouting about.’ TIME OUT

‘Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari are compelling artists… Their practice is restless and probing, with a wit, intelligence and imagination that makes it sustain’ Tim Crouch

‘Their work is hard to define but impossible to forget.’
