This part gig- part theatrical performance piece arrives as part of the Vaults Festival from the 17th to the 21st February.
Inspired by Philip K Dick’s novel Dr Bloodmoney, the world of Ziggy Stardust and the age of austerity in Britain, Songs for the End of the World is a unique blend of music and theatre.
Songs for the End of the World was written by Dom Coyote, Michael Vale and Tom Penn, with the production directed by Tom Penn it looks at conformity and survival that is inspired by mid-century pop culture and science fiction.
Welcome to Ashley-Coombe, a Safe-Zone Community Town nestled deep in the true, blue heart of New Albion. As New Global Inc. capitalise on the suffering of the vulnerable, the Free Radicals are planning a new type of existence, and while some predict Biblical Armageddon, many are simply preparing for the end.
When the apocalypse does actually arrive, astronaut Jim Walters is left suspended in orbit, broadcasting his songs for the end of the world back to a silent Earth, where the few remaining survivors must fight for their future.
The cast for the production includes: Dom Coyote, Milly Blue, Ted Barnes, Daisy Palmer and Tom Penn.
Composer, writer and performer Dom Coyote said: ” It’s like going to a rock gig in a parallel Universe…a band playing their hearts out for the end of the world, and it’s never been more relevant.”
Songs for the End of the World runs as part of the Vault Festival from the 17th to the 21st February. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.vaultfestival.com/event/songs-for-the-end-of-the-world/2016-02-17/.
