On The High Road

  • Project: On The High Road
  • Artist/Company:

By Clod Ensemble

A disparate group of people are caught in a storm on the High Road, somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Whether rich or poor, old or young, pilgrim or party-goer, they must all seek refuge under the same roof. As the night draws in, they dream, pray, dance and fight – all the time testing the limits of what little space they have – waiting for the dawn to come.

With its stark monochrome design, vital movement and urgent soundscore, On The High Road revels in Weimar-esque ambiguity and raciness, conjuring a feverish end-of-epoch atmosphere. Wholly original, edgy and enthralling visual theatre.

A festival edit of On The High Road is appearing at Latitude Festival, on 14 July. Doors to the Theatre tent at Latitude open at 17.15 and 20.30 and the show lasts 45 minutes.
