“Time present and time past are both present in time future” – T.S. Elliot

Set in a future inner city, a young boy sits with his few possessions. Electric Heaven invites into the future to explore a forgotten past which lies scattered amongst the ruins of a modern world dominated by television and computer monitors.
Electric Heaven was an environmental mystery tour, performed bilingually in Sylheti-Bengali and English. Audiences were asked to interact and shape the story as it unfolded in a participatory theatre style the company was well known for. This production incorporated audio-visual elements into the design realisation.
Electric Heaven was devised by the company and toured to schools.
