Totality explores the inexplicable experience of watching a total solar eclipse.


A woman perches on a desk in a classroom.
A woman in a hot pink dress with billowing pillowing sleeves.
A row of children sit cross-legged in front of her.
The wall clock reads twelve past ten.

Full moon. Half moon. Total eclipse.

Wednesday the 11th of August, 1999. A once in a lifetime experience will take place at 11:11am, where nature will run amok. Maybe you’ve driven 15 hours to get the best view, or maybe you’ve stumbled here. It doesn’t matter, it can’t be stopped. Totality has begun.

We can chart astronomic events into the next millennia with minute precision, so why are we still awestruck by the simple motion of the sun disappearing behind a moon?

Drawing inspiration from home videos, personal testimonies and that jaffa cake advert.

Developed on Live Drafts at the Yard Theatre
