The fens, east of Cambridge, have been underwater, drained, and reclaimed. They say its earth is so fertile that if you scoop up a handful you’ll grow three fingers before you throw it down again. Real people make their lives here, but the wild is always close at hand. The stories passed around are of daughters, fathers, lovers, foxes, twins, women, fishers, men.
Fen is a new devised piece based on stories by Daisy Johnson, created in the eery landscapes and dingy rehearsal rooms of Cambridge. It incorporates nature and technology into an immersive, uncanny exploration of the indelible marks a landscape can leave on its people.
