Heart of Darkness at Northern Stage

About

Think Apocalypse Now meets The Road meets Double Indemnity.

Written more than 100 years ago, Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness is a tale of lies and brutal greed and of the dark heart which beats within us all. Now re-sited in a forsaken Europe, lost to the destructive lust for power, it emerges as a tale absolutely for our time.

This bold re-telling of the Conrad classic is a visually rich, multi-layered work which fuses live performance with digital technology.

The performers enter the stage, into uncharted territory. They are adrift with a story that they know they must tell. As they wait for the turn of the tide, the story unfolds like an animated Cinemascope graphic novel on the hanging projections screens above their heads.

The heart of darkness must be found. The story is impossible to tell, but it must be told.
