Description:

7.0 is inspired by Artistic Director Tamsin Fitzgerald’s visit to Haiti a year on after the earthquake. Still in a state of emergency, and surrounded by the un-cleared rubble and dust, the piece explores what happens when we live in a state of political, physical and geographical uncertainty. 7.0 questions how we react when everything we take for granted, our homes, communities and social structures, are removed.
