UniVerse: A Dark Crystal Odyssey
Company: Company Wayne McGregor
Since its premiere in 1982, Jim Henson’s film The Dark Crystal has achieved cult status. A darkly fantastical tale with ecological overtones, today its depiction of an earth riven by extremes and in need of healing is more urgent than ever.
UniVerse: A Dark Crystal Odyssey reimagines Henson’s epic adventure and unsettling world in the context of our own ailing planet, exploring themes of nature, exploitation, courage and rescue, and asking how we can come together to be whole again.
