A site-specific event that feeds you egg and chips and surrounds you with fragments of ten peoples childhoods.
From the fragments, we will assemble a childhood yet to be lived, which bits will go into the book and which bits will go on the fire outside. In a non-secular world, the rituals that define our lives have disappeared or been commercialised beyond recognition. Almighty Explosion is a new ritual, a ceremonial cutting of the line of trauma that has run through generations and a celebration of the new. 


Jonathan McGrath is one of the leading lights on the visual theatre scene today.
Over the years Jonathan has travelled from live arts to visual storytelling and is equally at home
on the stage or outdoor. Jonathan's work is vital to the ecology of the arts in the north-west.
