Iris received Arts Council funding to undertake a week-long research and development project, held at Hackney’s famous ‘Circus Space’.

Artistic Director Dan Winder says the multi-disciplinary approach is aimed at creating a "brand new style of storytelling".

"The overall vision of the project is the creation of a piece that can exist on several platforms simultaneously. We’ll explore ways of integrating the different skill sets of the artists, and so develop a brand new style of performance incorporating the best elements of each of their disciplines.

The setting for this exploration is a future dystopic landscape peopled by mutants, humanoids and cybernetic robots. The narrative will draw on the whole British Science Fiction tradition; from Riddley Scott's Blade Runner to Huxley's Brave New World, as well as more traditional fairy tales."
