Fairytales for Grown-ups - EPIC JUKE BOX!
PERFORMANCE STORYTELLING with BEN HAGGARTY, EMILY HENNESSEY, MIKAEL OBERG & DOMINIC KELLY.
MUSIC by SHEEMA MUKHERJEE & JONAH BRODY
The stage is set for a high voltage mythological mash-up!
Inspired by a 3,000 year old Indian epic-singing tradition, international ensemble Pandvani108, combine performance storytelling, music and song to turn on the epic jukebox and bring us a wild night of unbowdlerised global myth and epic in untamed short form style. Gods, monsters, giants, warriors & divas from Greece, Ireland, the Scandinavian North, the Indian heat and beyond, are all hauled centre stage.
Far from sedate spoken word this is more like organised chaos with added deities. Brash, exuberant, and with more experimental excitement than you can shake a stick atthis is the Short Myth Massive - live and irresistibly direct!
playful & powerful - a highlight of this years festival' Beyond the Border Festival
In a field on the outskirts of Cranborne village, there is a hill, and it has a door....
One of Dorset's best kept secrets, the Earthouse is a 200 seater theatre - lit by lamplight and fire-light. Here audiences sit on wooden benches, under an earth roof, held up by 25 huge aok tree trunks. They come to listen to stories, told by the UK's finest contemporary performance storytellers. This off-beat, little known venue is a magical cinema of the imagination.
Turn off Damerham Road into Cranborne Middle School. Parking is in the school car-park. Walk up the road from the car-park to the Ancient Technology Centre, and follow the lane and then the twinkly lights and the candle lanterns to the doors of the Earthouse.
