        Island, The

Island, The

The Island is about genetic research carried out by Dr Tom Norman, a fictional modern-day character who shares his name with the famous manager of human freak shows in England at the turn of the twentieth century. It uses this as an entry point to explore contemporary questions of dehumanisation, otherness, bizarreness, the uncanny, and the human desire to understand and control nature through science.

The work was devised by Jane and the cast and crew, over a period of several months.
