Arctic-ulate is a unique, multi-media show inspired by the science and heritage of the polar environment. Written and performed by the Polar Poets, Susan Richardson and Siobhan Logan, it interweaves poetry, performance, story, music and images into a vivid and enlightening one-hour piece of theatre. In the process, themes such as the history of polar exploration, the myths of the aurora borealis, and the fragility of the polar landscape at a time of climate change and increasing industrialisation, are also addressed.
Both writers have travelled throughout the Arctic and experienced the polar landscape at first hand. They have performed their work at a wide range of venues and events, including the National Space Centre in Leicester, the Science Musuem in London, at polar anniversaries and UN World Environment Day celebrations.
Arctic-ulate has toured science festivals throughout the UK, from Manchester to Wrexham to Saltaire, while Susan’s solo version of the show has been seen at Bristol Big Green Week and at the ONCA Centre for Ats and Ecology in Brighton.
Comments from audience members on performances of Arctic-ulate at Wrexham and Manchester Science Festivals:
There’s so much work gone into this show – it was brilliant!
As a polar buff, this was right up my street. Really interesting.
Two lovely, clever, committed women – thank you!
Brilliant mix of poetry, science and history. Very informative and thought-provoking.
I’ve always wanted to see the Northern Lights so the images were wonderful.
