Taking inspiration from the exhibition John Martin: Apocalypse, this event will explore apocalyptic visions from a contemporary viewpoint through a vibrant mix of performances, music, talks and films.

The evening includes Richard Strange’s Cabaret Apocalyptica with live performances and interventions from Sean Dower, Richard Wilson, Bonfire Madigan Shive, and  Kelly Dearsley with spoken word from Kate Tempest and DJ sets from Gavin Turk. Plus an immersive post-apocalyptic digital sound and visual performance from Studio for Electronic Theatre, and talks and screenings curated by Tate Collective.

There will also be a screening of a new video work Last, inspired by John Martin’s apocalyptic painting The Last Man and made by young people from Newcastle in collaboration with Arpeggio Films.
