From the award winning Pacitti Company comes a major new work exploring myth, money and magic. A Forest is a place where skin is turned into wallets and straw gets spun into gold; where being an ass means looking an ass; where storming off alone can mean the difference between life or death.

Internationally acclaimed for their strong visual style Pacitti Company are well known for their uncompromising approach to image making. Made for limited capacity audiences A Forest is an intimate event fusing cutting edge sound work with upfront live performance. A stab wound in the heart of an easy life, this is desperately uneasy theatre.

Politicised, inquiring and process-led Pacitti Company has over the past 20 years produced a body of award-winning group and solo performance works. Using a range of theatre, gallery and site-specific spaces, the Company has both delighted and challenged audiences worldwide. Pacitti Company has established itself as one of the leading lights of British performance.
