As Deptford disappers under a cloud of volcanic ash, hide out with SMASHfestUK artist-in-residence Jenny Edbrooke in the Deptford Lounge and create some artistic eruptions of your own. Let your imagination run free in making a range of fantastic volcano themed art. Take home your volcanic creations to remind you of this year’s SMASHfestUK adventure
Sora’s life began in flight from Montserrat and the darkness of an island shrouded in volcanic ash. Now the world seems darker again, riven with fear. London has always been Sora’s home but she feels like it is changing. She has never visited Montserrat but she is wondering whether living in the shadow of a volcano is worse than living surrounded by people who are afraid of each other. Something is pulling her back. SMASHfestUK’s unique company of young actors tell Sora’s story in a funny, moving and original new production
