Forsaken is the story of an island set at the moment of depopulation, of a struggle for survival and a struggle with the past.
Sandy is the last inhabitant of this small island. He is old and barely able to fend for himself, yet is steadfast in his refusal to be moved. In this extreme isolation, memory and myth become inseparable while sound, image and speech become fragmented.
The island, it seems, is what Sandy lives for. Until, from nowhere, a young woman arrives, shattering the fragile world he has created for himself and forcing him to confront his own demise.
As these two characters try to piece together scraps of tradition and fleeting images from the island's dark past, Sandy's story is overshadowed by his own erratic behaviour.
This is a provocative new piece of theatre that merges physical performance and multimedia to explore the gap between what is real and not real, what is seen and half seen.
