Remote Patrol (2007)
As the June sun sets in real time, five insect-like characters realise that the dying of the light will bring an end to the utopia they have been enjoying. A beautiful, image-driven performance poem sets out a daunting metaphor for mankind’s future on the planet.
Remote Patrol was a site-specific promenade performance, presented at the Bath Abbey Cemetery in association with The Rondo Theatre and ICIA, with support from The Debut Project & Natural Theatre Company
That’s fringe theatre! …spectacularly atmospheric. It wasn’t preachy; it dealt primarily in images, leaving you to make what you wanted of them. Magic. ****
John Christopher Wood, Chairman of Bath Fringe in Venue Magazine.
The best alternative use of the cemetery I’ve ever seen.
Charles Curnock, Bath Abbey Administrator
You kept the audience totally engaged and intrigued. Well done

Inventive, imaginative and a timely look at an eco-catastrophe. The Bard of Bath.
Arresting images & metaphors and some really impressive coups. Paul Garland, Friends of the Earth.
Lovely bit of drip-feed story-telling. A cranky bit of magic.
Donnie Darko meets Great Expectations. Please do more and more of these.
I’m not sure if it’s your dream or mine. I think it might be mine. I hope it is!
It made us visit somewhere we barely knew existed for the public and I have lived in Bath for years. Well done and thank you.
Beautiful use of history and environment. Felt very involved as an audience member. Loved the use of recycled products integrated into the set. Congratulations.
