Souterrain at Dolcoath mine, Cornwall: WildWorks Theatre

An outdoor site specific theatre production, retelling the story of Orpheus' descent into the underworld (a disused Cornish tin mine).  The public walk with performers a 1km route through old mine workings; the story is told through performance along the way.  Lighting was designed to dramatise the story as well as light the path for an event that stretched from dusk into night.  Equipment able to survive in outdoor weather for weeks was a factor in the design.
