This performance is suitable for ages 16+ and contains loud sound / flashing, strobe light and very strong langauge.

margate/dreamland is about an island, a town and its people.?
It is our response to the current state of the world and its imminent collapse.?
It is about the kaleidoscope of competing narratives of who we are.
It is a love song.

“It left me walking down the road feeling like a bunch of monkeys dressed up in a coat.”
Megan Vaughan, “Synonyms for Churlish”

Members of the pioneering cult performance collective shunt - Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari make wild, bold, visual performance for people who don’t really like theatre and unusual theatrical experiences for those who do.
