This collaboration brings artistic and scientific research together to reshape the imaginaries of conservation. It considers the efficacy of Performing Arts in enhancing public engagement with Quaternary Science, and applies specialist scientific knowledge to the development of site-based performance practice. Our proposal is that an enhanced understanding of Quaternary history (the last 2.6 million years), along with a creative sensibility to possible futures in wildlife conservation, can have a significant impact on the way that present publics engage with concepts of wildness and wilderness.
