Trial of the Mariner

​Performer and devisor - Oliver James Hymans

Director -  Roberto Marcelo Sanchez-Camus

A Lotos Collective Production.

Immersive theatre production at Hoxton Hall & Cloud Cuckoo Land, 2011.



A multimedia mix of action, puppetry, circus and live junk music that responds to the destruction of our oceans and its effect on climate change. Informed and inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Lewis’ Carroll’s The Hunting of The Snark.


Set in 2111 a group of desperate sailors embark on the Ship of Fools across the now radioactive oceans. Lost at sea and mad with cabin fever they arrive at the Plastic Continent spinning in the North Pacific Ocean gyre where the unhinged Mariner’s adventures come to life around the audience. (
