Anarchic, dreamy and dangerous, And the Birds Fell from the Sky is a work of subtlety, provocation, political resonance and technical ingenuity – a joyride from inside your head all the way to the edge of civilisation, crammed into a car with three Faruk clowns.

An immersive performance combining ‘autoteatro’ style instructions with film, by artist/devisor and ‘autoteatro’ pioneer Silvia Mercuriali (Rotozaza) and multi-awardwinning filmmaker and artist, Simon Wilkinson, And the Birds Fell from the Sky casts you as the central character, located at the heart of the story.

Equipped with video goggles and headphones so that sight, hearing and movement through space are hijacked and fully fused with the work itself, get ready to enter a compelling fictional reality that becomes gradually more real and present than the world around you…
