How far can you see? A mile? A hundred miles? Or to the furthest shores of the Universe to a far away galaxy? It’s Max’s job to ask the cosmic questions. Passionate about astronomy, he works as the narrator at the city’s Planetarium where he challenges his dwindling audiences with the mysteries of the stars and science. But in a society polluting the night sky with light and happier to explore the heavens on a smartphone he feels increasingly out of place.
When his own life takes an unexpected turn, Max discovers that seeing doesn’t necessarily bring insight and that understanding the universe requires a different kind of vision…
Going Dark is a one-man show devised by Sound&Fury. Using the company’s innovative theatre vocabulary of immersive surround sound design, total darkness and imaginative lighting, it reawakens our wonder at the cosmos and reveals how one man’s vision becomes illuminated by darkness.
