once & future

In a time lost by history, there was talk of a leader, someone who united a divided kingdom. A kid who no one expected to achieve much.

Today, a group of artists look back, hoping to reclaim the legend and let it inform their future.


But is it possible?

Is it useful?


Once & Future asks if modern life and myth can exist together.


This project was a collaboration between Barrel Organ & Final Year students on the Theatre & Performance course at Manchester’s Arden School.
