Suddenly, a huge sea-faring vessel is built in the Square outside the National Theatre made from recycled scenery, riverside-finds and salvaged materials. Once assembled, this strange Ark-ive invites you, two by two, to bring objects, drawings, photographs and stories of animals that you have had some kind of interaction with.
Memories of a beloved pet or a friendly stray, an open encounter in the wild or a caged encounter in a zoo, an animal which worked for you or helped you in a crisis, or perhaps an animal that was your dinner last night. Over the week it becomes a massive depository for man’s complex relationship with the animal world – until the flood arrives...
There’s music at the end of each day and various events will pop up randomly throughout the week – including the National Youth Theatre providing ‘the flood’ – until Home Live Art bring the week to a conclusion with a Village Fete to celebrate the Ark hitting ‘dry land’.
WildWorks recently produced The Passion with the National Theatre of Wales in Port Talbot and Babel in North London.
