Doggerland, a performance about boundaries (Brighton Fringe)
May 15, 2022 @ 4:30 am - 8:00 pm£13
A performance about boundaries, real and imaginary, and how they shape our experience of being human. It explores the arbitrary notion of political borders, the implications of ecological barriers, the threshold of our inner world and the porous nature of skin. The performance takes the form of an absurd lecture/presentation on the history of Doggerland with audience interaction.
Sometimes called Europe’s ‘lost land’ or the lost ‘Atlantis’ of the North Sea, Doggerland is a submerged land mass that once connected Britain to continental Europe. The existence of Doggerland was first suggested in a late 19th-century book A Story of the Stone Age by H.G. Wells, set in a prehistoric region where it would have been possible to walk from Europe to Britain.
