Quarantine: “Between Us, We Know Everything…”

One of Manchester’s finest and most innovative theatre companies will bring a fascinating new installation to Lytham St. Annes in August.

Quarantine are renowned for their cutting edge, off-the-wall work and their video project “Between Us, We Know Everything…”, is no different.

The award-winning company will bring a mobile video booth to Lowther Pavilion in Lowther Gardens, West Beach, from Tuesday 4 August until Sunday 9 August, which will be open to the public between 11am and 3pm each day, completely free of charge.

2010 marked the last print edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica: in 25 years, the web has replaced a 246-year old resource.

“Between us, we know everything….” seeks to capture what we know, everything we know, anything we know. It’s about all the useful and useless information we’ve acquired over the course of our lives. It’s about putting faces to the facts, and bringing people into the story – making a huge online map of knowledge.

Quarantine invites you to make your contribution. Visit the mobile video studio to film a piece of information that you want to share with the world. They’ll film you sharing your knowledge, and upload it to a dedicated website (www.betweenusweknoweverything.com). What do you know?

The show has been brought to the Lowther Pavilion by Spot On, Lancashire’s rural touring network. They exist to enable people living in rural communities to enjoy live arts on their doorstep.

Speaking ahead of the the upcoming dates, Spot On Scheme Manager, Sue Robinson, said:

“This is an incredibly original and fascinating piece of work from a top quality theatre company who are constantly conjuring up new ways of getting people thinking and talking about important issues. We are absolutely delighted to be able to bring such a fantastic piece of work to Lytham St. Annes”.
