It’s about an island, a town and it’s people.
It’s our response to the state of the world and it’s imminent collapse.
It’s about the kaleidoscope of competing narratives of who we are.
It is a love song.

Nigel & Louise spent 4 years researching and writing this show. At a time of momentous change in the town, in the country, in the world, they talked to the people of Margate, scribbled down overheard conversations, trawled the internet and scoured local papers. They assembled these voices into an epic poem that they performed live with synth/punk/rockers AK/DK. They never knew who would say which line, the music was improvised, the show was different every night.
