About Ragnarok

Listed Under Theatre Events

A golden age is ending

There have been three years of winter.

The sun hangs low in the sky, unmoving, and the bonds of kinship are failing.

A young girl and her brother battle forward, seeking a future in a promised land. Two souls in a sea of thousands, they move through a fractured world as dream and reality clash around them.

A collision of ancient myth and modern spectacle, Ragnarok takes its inspiration from Norse mythology’s cyclical tale of the same name. It is a story about fate and determination, mortals and gods, the world’s end and its rebirth.

What is it to be one face in a million, walking through the end of your world?

The world is breaking.

Ragnarok creates a bold, haunting and multisensory theatrical world, populated by scores of hand-crafted clay figures and an atmospheric immersive soundtrack.

In co-production with Firgurteatret I Nordland (Nordland Visual Theatre) and in association with Macrobert Arts Centre, multi-award-winning Tortoise in a Nutshell create an enthralling new production that fuses forms to stunning effect, blending human performance, puppetry and hand-crafted live animation in their most ambitious production to date.

Recommended age: 13yrs+
