A series of presentations sited in pitch black shipping containers,
irrational spaces at odds with their physical appearance.
DARKFIELD is home to work by Glen Neath and David Rosenberg, who have been collaborating since 2012.
DARKFIELD is an ongoing project; a collection of individual experiences that all explore fear and anxiety.
Previous shows Ring (2013) and Fiction (2015), both produced by Fuel, toured extensively and had several sell-out runs in London. For information about Ring and Fiction email firstname.lastname@example.org.
They invited producer Andrea Salazar to work with them on DARKFIELD in 2016.
