Theatre Ballads: Horse and Bamboo Theatre

-

Cecil Sharp House, London

The ballad is a story, a story in song. In this newly commissioned piece Horse + Bamboo depict songs of a great fight, a broken contract and a female smuggler.

Each is a historic ballad arranged and performed live alongside puppetry and simple illustrations, drawing out the tales before your eyes!

The voices, harmonies, stories, puppets, music and animation will combine to create an evocative new look at visual theatre and folk music. Featuring Bryony Griffith (fiddle, viola, voice and piano), Kate Locksley (voice and narrative presentation), Ewan McLennan (guitar and voice) and John Kirkpatrick (melodeon, accordion and voice).
