Event description

Description

Castle Builder

Doors 7.30pm / Show starts 8pm

*BAC recommends ages 12+

A musical, magical, moving & comic journey through the minds of some of our planet’s most eccentric and creative individuals.

The Castle Builder tells the true story of an inmate in a Norwegian psychiatric institute who over 5 years built a castle on a remote headland. But ...where was he getting his bricks from?

The show spirals outwards from personal accounts into tales of other outsider artists who’ve been inspired to build gigantic extraordinary structures, alone, in secret, and without artistic validation from the real world.

Vic Llewellyn and Kid Carpet re-imagine these stories and tell them with visceral live music, dancing, projection & heart felt storytelling and chewed bread sculptures.

The show also includes the presence of an invited maker/artisan who constructs during the duration of the piece and presents something unique to the audience at the climax of the show.


Press:

- A smash-hit success at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe!
- ★★★★ The Fix - “Funny, educational and most importantly, inspiring.”
- ★★★★★ The British Theatre Guide - “boisterous and innovative.”
- ★★★★ Across the Arts - “Hilarious, touching and poignant.”
- ★★★★ Total Theatre Magazine - “joyful, messy and exuberant”

Written and Performed by Vic Llewellyn & Kid Carpet
