Anatomy @ Summerhall, Edinburgh

We proposed for Anatomy – a new scratch night in Edinburgh at the magnificent Summerhall building (the Old Dick Vet School) with a development of our work into end-of-the-world fiction. We were still working with Kurt Vonnegut’s text Cat’s Cradle, introducing the substance of ICE-NINE to our audience and explaining how it could destroy the planet.

Here’s the blurb from the scratch:

“Ice-Nine (performance)

Based on Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle, two individuals discuss the potential existence of a substance that could result in the freezing of all the water on Earth. Makeshift Broadcast is currently interested in the possibilities of exploring science and technology through personal narratives, particularly in relation to climate change and sustainability.”

We worked with Alex Fthenakis and Molly Bunder for a few days, exploring the characters and where we might take the scene in the future.

Big thanks to Harry Giles and Ali Maloney for organising the event! They said there will hopefully be another Anatomy in a few months, so keep your eyes peeled.
