Economy of Ecology

An urgent and provocative story about human relationships, communications and our impact on the natural world.

Travelling on a crowded plane, Steve feels dislocated and alone. In a world of touch screens and social robots, he has lost the ability to make meaningful bonds with other people.

In a forest thousands of miles away a sapling pokes its head through the leafy forest floor. Beneath the soil its roots begin to scramble for the one thing that guarantees its survival - a connection.

An urgent and provocative story about human relationships, communications and our impact on the natural world, where the often overlooked can sometimes become the simplest of solutions.

Blending stunning visuals and imaginative physical storytelling, The Economy of Ecology uncovers the power of human touch and the unexpected links between all things, questioning whether we are a touch deprived culture.

Founded in 2012, Leeds based Manic Chord Theatre develop work through multi disciplinary collaborations, combining physcial storytelling, cutting edge research and innovative design to explore its subject matter. Alongside this project the company is developing This is Yesterday, a multi-platform project exploring the conscious mind of someone living with Alzheimers.
