Watch an introduction to the project here

Step inside a replica 1950’s Antarctic hut and be transported to Deception Island, a tiny caldera in the Antarctic Ocean - an immersive poetry, sound and film expedition like nothing you have been on before.

As the ship carrying the author’s father edges through the basalt cliffs into the calmer waters of Deception Island, the island’s many voices, human and non-human, begin to speak.

Presented by Story Machine in collaboration with Elizabeth Lewis Williams, supported by Hexham Abbey and Northumberland County Council.

‘Experience is an overused word. However, THIS IS THE WAY to experience a story.’ 

‘A brilliant immersive poetry film installation’. 

'A stunning, immersive experience that reminds you of everything we have to lose if we don’t take better care of our planet.’
