Immersive binaural sound performance using projection and physical theatre to explore the atmosphere at the top of the worlds highest mountain. 


Step into a dream like terrain where climbers suffer oxygen deprivation, snow blindness and sometimes complete delirium.

Inspired by the legacy of high altitude climbers, the stories, objects and mysteries discovered on the slopes. '

Come with us on the climb . .  .

What We Left Behind was developed by the Barbican with performances as part of their Best of Open Lab performances. 

Upcoming performance are programmed for North Londons vast climbing centre Yonder in 2023
