As part of the national 'Museums at Night' event, the artist, storyteller and performer Sarah Riseborough comes to Durham Castle to read her captivating short story 'Tale of the Tower' in the intimate and atmospheric surroundings of the Norman Chapel.
Sarah Riseborough is an artist who focuses on performance and has recently presented work in Interakcje in Poland, Belfast and BALTIC and Gallery North in Newcastle. She is currently working with text and her experience of the tower at Dunstanburgh Castle was the starting point for her artist’s book Tale of the Tower to unfold. It is an atmospheric verse that follows the fortunes of an aspiring hero who is borne of the legend of a vampiric witch and her captive.
