Description

Drawing from the lives, manifestos and works of James Cooke, Sankichi Toga, Flying Saucer Review, Jack the Ripper, C.A. Conrad, Yoko Ono, Kathy Chang(e), and Daniel J. Clay.

On 7th September 1957, James Cooke, a furniture salesman, claimed to have been taken from Runcorn, Cheshire by aliens to a planet named Zomdic. On Zomdic he was given a stark message for the human race ‘Warn them of the danger’.

On his ‘return’ to Earth, Cooke founded ‘The Church of Aquarius’ in Runcorn, dedicated to warning the human race of the danger of nuclear weapons and the destruction of the planet’s ecology.

'Warn Them Of The Danger' is a theatrical, visceral collage using Cooke's remarkable story to explore the boundaries of violence and belief.

Written and compiled by Runcorn natives Claire Monica Burgess and Raymond Waring with music by Peter Cattermoul.
