The Vaults,
Leake Street,


Running Time : 1 hour


Show Details

'Set in a future where the world has drastically changed. In the pits of a disintegrating city, Artemis awakes surrounded by brick, stirring from the echoes of prayer, to witness the consequence of our actions & the destruction of nature.'


A multidisciplinary performance, set to the backdrop of an eery underground vault where the archetype of the Guardian 'Artemis' weaves together humanities story through aerial circus, physical theatre & movement.


Haunting images of a deer skull are juxtaposed with soundscapes, spoken word and song to create a mesmeric performative ritual, offering up a journey of transformation, through the emotional landscape of grief, rage, reconnection, commitment and hope.


Alana Bloom is an artist exploring mythology, archetype, ritual, movement practices and how circus and physical theatre are tools for exploration of these themes. She regularly dives into immersive and interactive roles with infectious energy and a constant thirst to engage and provoke whilst working with the vulnerability of the performer and the ability to shapeshift into whatever the story needs to be told.

Alana co-ordinates events for the Psychedelic Society, regularly facilitates movement work and creative retreats in Europe & the UK that explore ritual & psychomagic and the dance between sacred & profane. She is also regularly involved with creative performance projects including improvised, immersive and interactive theatre. She has worked on projects with Shotgun Carousel, Secret Cinema, Moon Fool, Rogue Theater, Erth (The Eden Project) The Artful Badger, Mama Marbles, Divine Ridiculous and The Salon Collective


What the press say

'Every part of the performance was beautifully crafted, with a powerful use of silence, an incredibly effective minimalism of set and one of the most evocative monologues I've experienced in years' - Emilie Lecoq

'Your expression of emotion, energy, innocence, passion and power were awesome. The music was perfectly reflecting your movements and the monologue left goose bumps.' - Nick pepper

'Artemis is a rare thing. Alana Bloom has a unique quality on stage. In the piece we see her oscillate between the vulnerable, human realm and the powerful realm of the divine, bringing to both an authentic quality whilst she dangles precariously in a space between falling and flying' - Daniel Hernandez

Venue Details

The Vaults,
Leake Street,

Eight unbelievable venues, three stylish bars and a top-notch restaurant, all hidden beneath Waterloo. From 6pm until the early hours, there’s nowhere else you need to be. Welcome to VAULT 2016

“The business model for the creative industries is broken. For every performer at Edinburgh working for nothing, read musician on Spotify or writer on the net. Providers of content make peanuts, while the controllers of the infrastructure… walk away with extraordinary profits. … How can we transfer some of the wealth grabbed by, say, hotels in Edinburgh and hand it to the people who generated it?”
Patrick Collinson, The Guardian, 29 / 8 / 15

We want VAULT Festival to be the people’s festival. For six weeks, join this carnival of experience, filled with entertainment and around every corner an unexpected adventure. From hard-hitting drama to outrageous comedy, from dance to late-night parties, VAULT takes in the bravest and best of the next generation of creators.

“It’s risky to bring a show [to Edinburgh Festival] that you know needs a lot of development in the faint hope that someone will spot a gold nugget and offer to help nurture it. In any case, if you are only here with something in the hope of catching someone’s eye, you are selling audiences short. They should be the people you really make the show for, not some producer who may or may not pitch up.”
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian, 20 / 8 / 15

We put up the flag here at the edge of theatreland, and gather acts & artists, bands & companies from all over to come and make something unforgettable. It’s their festival, and we’re inviting you to celebrate it with us.

We’re doing our best to reinvent the non-funded creative sector and make it sustainable for both the artist and the festival. What we give is space: to innovate, take risks and cooperate with each other. We don’t charge rent. We do take 30% of show box office, which goes some way – but not all the way towards covering our costs. In this way, Artists and Festival live or die together.
Come and see what the people have made: there’s a conversation every single night about where we go from here. There’s three great bars, fantastic food and enough entertainment to make the outside world irrelevant as long as our doors are open.


Halfway down Leake Street (the Graffiti Tunnel). Please do not go to the Launcelot Street entrance. The venue can be hard to find – please leave more time than you usually would.
