Festival Review: Exeunt Magazine

November 23, 2016 - by Mike Pony


Exeunt Magazine present beautifully written, experimental, fierce and longform writing about theatre. Critic Rosemary Waugh came along to Submerge Festival to review our events Ghosts and The Cube.

Ghosts

“Whether as irreligious references to the risen Christ or as the spirits of names carved into stone plaques, churches are possibly the most logical place of all for ghosts to be found. Yet the Church of St Thomas the Martyr in Bristol, chosen as the venue for Submerge Festival’s triple bill of works titled Ghosts, feels pleasantly untouched by the fingerprints of spectral visitors.”

The Cube

“So anyway, the upshot is that you don’t get killed – and it’s nice that I keep reiterating this as now when you go see this very cool show, you can do so safe in the knowledge that YOU WILL NOT GET KILLED and, therefore, relax a little. But not too much, as on the whole The Cube is an unsettling experience, because it is meant to be so.”

“The light drummed against his brain, bathing the submerged levels below his consciousness, carrying him downwards into warm pellucid depths, where the nominal realities of time and space ceased to exist.” - J.G. Ballard, The Drowned World
