What if it was all over.
If time had run out.
If everything before was gone?


A newly devised solo show in response to climate emergency that asks for an end to life as we know it. What might come next?

Part performance, part event, Kay Michael of Empty Deck brings you Sequel, made with her old friend and trusted collaborator Bertrand Lesca of award-winning duo Bert&Nasi and with sounds by avant-synth-future-techno producer Janine A’Bear.

This is a work in progress and there might be blood. But on the other side: transformation.

Plates and cutlery provided.


Wednesday July 17th
Bristol Old Vic Ferment Fortnight, in Coopers Loft
£5 – Book Your Tickets HERE.


Conceived, Written and Presented by Kay Michael
Co-Directed by Bertand Lesca
Sound by Janine A’Bear
Sound and Movement Facilitation by Helen Knight


Sequel is a show about death and renewal and has been developed thanks to Theatre Royal Plymouth, the TippingPoint & House seed commission Doing Nothing Is Not An Option, the MGCfutures Bursary and Coombe Farm Studios. Kay is a co-founder of Culture Declares Emergency, and this is her response.
