Marc Brew kicks off a twelve date tour of his latest outdoor work (i)land this week. With themes of identity, belonging, survival and independence, (i)land will be appearing in Glasgow as part of Festival 2014 and will also be touring to a number of festivals across the UK.
Set on a six ton pile of sand upon which Marc performs away from his wheelchair, (i)land explores an interesting, imaginary dilemma:
Three people find themselves abandoned on a deserted island with only each other for support. As they explore they gradually start to discover the pieces of a vehicle – buried in the sand – that can take them off the island. They work together to build the craft, only to discover that it won’t carry all of them.
