When Creddylad’s 10 year old twin brother doesn’t return home one night the whole town searches the area for three days and nights. But he is gone. Seemingly without a trace. It is as though he has dropped off the earth. Will he return? Will mid Wales’ heart once again find it’s beat? Will this performance give you a chance to find yours?
Told by Kama Roberts, this is a heart-stopping collection of tales from near and far. These unique stories deal with the common language of the human experience- of jealousy, of misunderstandings, of grief, of joy and compassion.
Multi-instrumentalist Jim Elliott weaves, loops and layers mesmerising melodies with compassion and sensitivity to the tales. He has spent his life working in music either in a community context or working with bands with varying levels of commercial success.
James Jones-Morris is an animator and shadow puppet artist extraordinaire. He has created animations for Wildworks Theatre Company at Kensington Palace and has been commissioned to create several music videos across Europe. His work has a mesmerising innocence. He has intuitively captured the stories with magic and heart in this production. Prepare to gasp at his paper cut creations.
Doors 4pm, Performance will start at 4.30pm.
