A new play by Steve Waters and Tangled Feet, an exploration of what we need from nature, and what nature needs from us

  • Booking advisable

An immersive site-specific play, Murmurations is a guided tour into nature you’ll never forget – a woman on a mission, a couple in conflict, a man with a plan, and a botanist’s last stand… and other invasive species of the human kind…

Through live scenes and songs, poetry and physical theatre, comedy and tragedy, Murmurations explores what we need from nature and

what nature needs from us in a world recovering from sickness …
