Tunnel Visions

Learning Projects

imitating the dog: Education Project

Working with Oldham Coliseum’s Youth Theatre groups TheatreLab and DigiLab and writer Rob Johnson the company worked on the production design and digital content for this site specific education project:

Tunnels hold secrets, deep underground passages left vacant, still, dark, damp and desolate. Tunnel Visions is an exploration of the mystery and intrigue of a forbidden place.

Using new technologies and new writing, this promenade performance will transform an atmospheric, undeveloped mill space into a journey back in time – incorporating everything from dinosaurs to suffragettes, and sci-fi to Saturday night TV. This funny, evocative and experimental piece, written by award-winning writer Rob Johnston, designed by the same team behind our recent success The Hound of the Baskervilles, and performed by the Coliseum’s participatory groups DigiLAB and TheatreLAB, will submerge the audience into a unique participatory experience, delving into what really lies beneath.
