THE LAST MINER
Under your feet lies a secret, a place full of shadows and memories, the home of a forgotten soul: The Last Miner. For years one man has lived underground in the place he used to work, hiding from his memories and the constantly changing world above. But as the roof of his home begins to collapse and his past comes flooding back, he’ll be left with a choice. Should he stay down below? Or come back up into the world he left so long ago? Using puppetry, light and shadow and an innovative soundscape, The Last Miner is an immersive and original tale remembering an amazing life amongst the coal dust.
