The Second Body

Every living thing has two bodies. The first is contained by our own skin. The second encompasses all the physical impact we've made on the world.

Based on the company’s namesake - Daisy Hildyard's book of the same name - The Second Body uses live music, sound-processing and storytelling to grapple with the fraught personal and societal relationships we have with climate change, and our cultural inability to differentiate between large and small scales.

The Second Body was presented as a work-in-progress sharing at the Fringe World festival in Perth, January 2020. Further development has been postponed due to COVID-19.
