Terra Incognito by Douglas Wright
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Picking up where his acclaimed Ghost Dance left off. Douglas Wright chronicles, after a series of bereavements, his decent into depression, despair and suicide. We meet the inhabitants of Hallburn House, a respite centre for people with HIV, and are given a rare, compassionate and sometimes hilarious glimpse of how those on the margins of our society contrive to live, love and die. Shimmering through the dark fabric of this account is a golden thread: the slow growth of an idea for a new work of dance-theatre, Black Milk. In this unique description of a celebrated artist's process, we are shown how works of art are sometimes born - and also how they sometimes have the power to resurrect.
