Dreaming The Great Bear - The Kalevala
Friday 3 May 2024
Theatre Royal, St. Leonard's Place, York YO1 7HD
A cow stands in a fire holding sun and moon between her horns.
A pine martin gathers spit from the mouth of a bear to brew beer.
An egg falls from a nest just balanced on the sky-girl’s knee.
And from its broken shards, nothing becomes something…

Storyteller, musician and singer, Nick Hennessey forges a world into being. Here in the Finnish far north the light is a just little too bright and the dark a little too blinding, the rivers flow fast and deep, and it’s all too easy to get lost in the forest.

Held within a wild enchanted soundscape of story, song, percussion, mbira, and harp – this remarkable performance of elemental epic lures us into the untamed, playful, and surreal territories of the Finnish creation myth – the Kalevala.

Fairytales For Grown-ups: The Grateful & The Dead
Wednesday 8 May 2024
RISE @ BLUEBIRD BAKERY 201 Acomb Rd, York
World renowned for his playful performances, allow Ben Haggarty to lure you into a full-blooded fairytale for grown-ups.

Dark, beautiful and startling by turn, this is a story of dreams, initiations and the repayment of debts – a journey from innocence to experience that delves into a disconcertingly familiar narrative world, complete with wild transformations, bizarre marriages, and strange companions.

Ben Haggarty performs with infectious charm and ease – fierce, fast paced, and unashamedly magical. This is a place where rules aren't broken lightly...
