Combining puppetry, immersive soundscapes and multimedia technology, the multi award-winning company Tortoise in a Nutshell build an entire world in front of the audience’s eyes. With barely a word spoken, Joe looks back at his childhood home and traces its journey from idyllic seaside town to community gripped by anarchy.
Beneath the Albion Sky, 5th November, 20:00
One morning not very long ago, Paul woke up, packed his bags and, leaving behind his partner and his job, caught a train to Penzance. From there, armed only with a map found in his father’s belongings, he began to walk St Michael’s Ley Line. Following the path of the sun from St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall to the coast of Suffolk, he has been bewitched in Dartmoor, danced with Boudicca and, if we believe him, fought a dragon (or two). Now Paul’s here to tell you the story. Mixing travelogue with historical fact (and fantasy) Beneath the Albion Sky is Write By Numbers’ poignant and humorous storytelling performance about our relationship with England’s past, the landscape around us, and the things our bodies and imaginations do to cope with loss.
