Event Details


Mid-afternoon.  October 1942.  A plane crashes.  A sole survivor.

2015.  September to July. 

Five site specific dance encounters that rewind in and around Porlock Vale.

In collaboration with The Crown Estate, the National Trust at Holnicote Estate and Porlock Manor Estate, Stacked Wonky Dance Company will create five site specific dance encounters for five different sites in and around Porlock Vale. 

You’ll be able to see these performances between July and September 2015.  The seed idea for Liberator links to the crash of an American bomber on Porlock Marsh in 1942, when 11 people lost their lives and one person, a staff sergeant, survived. 

Performances will take place in a variety of spaces - glade, field, barn, hilltop and marsh – and will be seen at different times of day.  You can watch just one or all five as they unfold over the summer, culminating in a finale on Porlock Marsh on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 September.

Dates and tickets for the remaining four performances taking place during August and September will be publicised at and across the local area.   Please note we are unable to refund tickets once they are purchased. 

With additional support from Porlock Arts Festival.

Nutcombe Bottom Performances - GLADE

Stacked Wonky Dance Company

Stacked Wonky is a contemporary dance company led by Artistic Director, Sarah Shorten, buoyed up and inspired by a very strong group of performers, designers, musicians, mentors and makers of all sorts. Over the past 10 years it has been quietly making work/commissions for unusual places – Trafalgar Square, Clovelly Court Estate, Museum of Childhood etc, resurfacing in 2015 with “Liberator”, a box-set of four site episodes performed in the Vale of Porlock to critical acclaim. “Anarchic and exuberant, the movement she creates is beautiful” say Time Out. Sarah has been supported by various organisations such as Arts Council England, Greenwich & Docklands International Festival and Dance South West. The Landings is Stacked Wonky's latest production based in West Somerset.
