The Dark Theatre series of large paintings stands for the potential energy building up in playwrights when the theatre is “dark”.  This is a metaphor for the lack of political representation of the Green message, which is positive, hopeful and even joyous.  Painter Michael Dunwell has worked for the Transition movement since its beginnings and believes that the arts have as much to say as the politicians.
