Reality is a narrative woven in the mind
For theatres, village halls, pubs, tents and fields.
The songs you absorb at your mother’s breast.
Those vibrations carry an essence of where you come from, who you are. They permeate generations and when you find yourself in another place and time, they ignite your heart and carry you home.
A solo performer crafts a painful, beautiful and rousing tale. Through embodied storytelling that flows effortlessly between spoken word and song, Seedbed Theatre unfurl a bastardised heroine’s journey infused with and inspired by songs of the British Isles.
