Ignition invited all of Shetland’s inhabitants to explore our bittersweet relationship with the automobile – how it shapes us, defines us, supports us, frees us, challenges our attitudes towards our dwindling resources and, sometimes, kills us.
Set in three locations across Shetland, the site-specific Ignition performances took audiences on shared car adventure experiencing stories through exhilarating drive-in theatre, the movement discipline of parkour, music, hitchhikers, dance and text.
Movement Direction by Janice Parker
