SUN by National Art Service
National Art Service

St Leonard's Church, Shoreditch High St, E1 6JN, London

Wednesday 05 February - Sunday 02 March 2014

A collection of scenes that imagine in abstract, passionate detail the descent, end, and new beginnings of civilised life on Earth. Created for a space of sanctuary and refuge, SUN explores what the human race would keep in the face of extinction, what is sacred in the  contemporary world and how we might be remembered by future generations.

National Art Service is a London based theatre collective led by writer Alan Fielden. Made up of a fluid ensemble of international collaborators from the US, Australia, Sweden and Singapore, NAS have created off west end productions since 2010. Previous work include the award winning 'The Winning Crowd' (LOST Theatre) and 'In the Dark' (Tristan Bates Theatre, Battersea Arts Centre, AXA Hotel Prague).

The cast is: Anna Martine, Jack McMahon, James Murray-Perton, Lydia Orange, Malachy Orozco, Loukia Pierides, Daniel Somerville, Duncan Wilkins and Oyinka Yusuff.

About St Leonard's Church

Dedicated to St Leonard, the patron saint of prisoners and the mentally ill, the church stands as the oldest building in Shoreditch. It prides itself on being the actors' church. The first English theatre was close by and was the site of several of Shakespeare's play premieres. The actors who were first to play Macbeth, Hamlet, Richard III, Othello and Romeo are all buried in the crypt of St Leonard's; so are the Burbage family who built The Globe.

St Leonard's Church, locally known as Shoreditch Church, has always been committed to its community. Its wonderful acoustics and rich architecture have made it a home to a variety of contemporary music and performance from the BBC Symphony Orchestra to Kate Tempest.
