THIS IS THE LAND
What exists in the 'thin places' where the distance between the living and the non-living is closer? Resisting narrative, This is the Land takes us on a mysterious journey of the British Isles and beyond - with its layers, sediments, joys, sorrows, and weather!
Unearthing untold stories that whisper in wish't places, echoes of folk-tales in the 'everywhen'. The show explores the wild within us. Through quirky movement and dance, vocal-looping, atmospheric soundtrack, and five shapeshifting performers.
Directed by Mary Steadman (Red Room Productions) in creative collaboration with performers Leeza Jessie, Alice Barton, Xavier De Santos, Samuel De La Torre, and Sofía Vélez and Music composed by John Baggott.
