Commemorating WW1 through memories, performance and sound

Dark Olive was commissioned by Cheshire East Council to create two large-scale multi art-form, community events to commemorate the First World War and draw to a close their four year Cheshire East Reflects programme.

Working with artists, stakeholders and the local community we devised and delivered When the Light Goes Out. The weekend programme took place in Crewe Town Centre and at Tatton Park over Armistice weekend. The two events included a parade, a street concert, choirs, a building projection artwork and a promenade performance created with schools, groups and individuals from the area in collaboration with professional theatre makers and artists.

The lead artists for the project were Illuminos and Yet Another Carnival.
