According to Francis Bacon, “Knowledge is Power”. Quarantine are putting this theory to the test, by creating a publicly-generated online encyclopedia, with their latest project, ‘Between Us, We Know Everything’. Quarantine was established in 1998 by directors Richard Gregory and Renny O’Shea with designer Simon Banham. They make original theatre, performance and public events, with and about the people who are in it.

2010 marked the last print edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica: In 25 years, the web has replaced a 246-year old resource. ‘Between Us, We Know Everything’ seeks to capture what we know, everything we know, anything we know. It’s about all the useful and useless information we’ve acquired over the course of our lives. It’s about putting faces to the facts, and bringing people into the story – making a huge online map of knowledge. Quarantine has spent the last two years travelling the country to capture knowledge and share it with the whole world. Now they are heading to the Fylde Coast, with their mobile film studio to collect your input for this project. This is a special, free event.

You can find them in Lowther Gardens, Lytham from Tuesday 4th – Sunday 9th of August 2015, at 11am – 3pm on each day.

Whether you’re young or old, a professor or a plumber, a working mum or a student, you know things. Visit the mobile video studio to be filmed. It will be upload to a dedicated website, so you can share your knowledge with the world.

See the encylopedia so far here:- www.betweenusweknoweverything.com and don’t forget to keep an eye out for your own video. More information on the company and their other projects can be found here:- www.qtine.com
