The Unicorn, supported by Molecule Theatre, presents Play Antarctica, a musical journey based on the real-life expedition of musician Craig Vear into the Antarctic.

Inspired by the great explorers of the early twentieth century, Craig’s mission was to gather and record the sounds that make up the music of this frozen world. With puppeteer Sean Myatt and actor Tim Kane, Play Antarctica recreates an awe-inspiring voyage to reach the heart of the earth’s last wilderness through a spectacular surround-sound experience.

Craig Vear, musician and electro-acoustic composer, is a winner of the joint fellowship with Arts Council England and British Antarctic Survey’s Artists and Writer Programme, which funded his trip to Antarctica. A diary of his adventures was published in The Guardian.
