Forget thoughts of skinheads or nostalgia, England is about an empire of a different kind — one of transmigrations and transplantations. It’s the story of one thing placed inside another: a heart inside another person’s body, a culture inside another country’s culture, theatre inside a gallery, a character inside an actor, a play inside its audience.
Performed by two guides within an exhibition, England travels the trade routes of art and human beings. It’s about a sickness and the search for health at any cost. It’s a tour through space and across borders: from an art gallery to a jam factory, from Seattle to Osaka, from a hospital bed to a hotel room.
Tim Crouch is an award winning actor and writer who performs his critically acclaimed work internationally. England premiered at the Fruitmarket Gallery, as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2007. This touring production will also be featured at the 2008 TBA Festival in Portland.
