Event Details

In Vegas, a magician performs a final disappearing act. The end of the world is a magic trick – are you watching closely? 

Ghosts of the Near Future is a genre-bending, multi-form storytelling show about extinction and disappearance. Colliding music, storytelling, and live micro-cinema, it is a hallucinatory road trip through a vanishing landscape, a haunting collage of miracles and misdirection.

Following a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, international performance duo emma + pj present this extraordinary elegy for a world living one minute to midnight.

Supported by New Diorama Theatre, Arts Council England, Barbican Centre, City of London, The Romilly Walton Masters Award, and The Maria Björnson Memorial Fund.
