PERFORMANCE STORYTELLING BY DOMINIC KELLY, MUSIC BY LEIF OTTOSON BRIDGET MARSDEN
Dominic Kelly, Bridget Marsden & Leif Ottosson fuse storytelling performance and music in a wild journey into the cinema of the imagination.
Beguiling, tricksy, highly-strung, and suspiciously helpful – the Little People are waiting in the shadows, beneath your feet, under the tables, and even in the cracks in the walls - and they’re waiting to prove just how hard it is to tell that they are there. On hot summer nights their world is a breath away and on long winter evenings they have far too much time on their hands...
A lost traveler finds himself guided through the mountain mists; a farmer marries an apparently perfect wife; a drunk gambles with a purse that is forever full, and an anxious mother watches her child turn into skin and bone… Come spend some time in the company of Themselves, the Gentry Below, the Good Folk, the sylphs, the sprites, the fairies, and a labyrinth of stories.
Suitable for adults (children 12+)
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 candle lanterns to the doors of the Earthouse. Wrap up warm, bring a cushion & wear sensible shoes!
