Fuel and Melanie Wilson present

A war photographer, convalescing in rural England connects through memories to a friend in Afghanistan and through letters and photographs to her great-great grandmother.
Three women separated by a hundred years start a conversation across time. Their parallel experiences reveal shared imaginings of identity and escape, as menacing undercurrents steal into their solitary and reflective lives. As the landscape presses in on them, they draw upon the threads that connect them to survive.
Landscape II is a compelling solo work by Melanie Wilson. This bold hybrid of performance, film and sound art creates a minutely observed piece of new theatre.
“A hauntingly intense multimedia monologue” (**** Herald)
“Melanie Wilson’s Landscape II is an extraordinary piece of theatre” (Andrew Haydon, Postcards from the Gods)
