Seamas Carey presents a FREE, work in progress performance of his new show: Pagan Pandemonium.
An interactive history lesson about ancient Cornish/British folklore customs and rituals, told through the medium of a Japanese game show.
Think Takeshi’s Castle meets The Wicker Man.
Most of the ancient pagan traditions that we celebrate today are based on the themes of sex and death (the main subjects that occupy us as humans). Yet how can we explore and deconstruct these massive topics and rituals through the medium of a Japanese game show using large inflatables?
Cornwall is full of weird and wonderful traditions. If born here, you grow up with an unavoidable awareness of these customs. Festivals roll on year in – year out. They mark the passing of time, they welcome in a change of season, they remind us who we are and act as community healing. Yet do we really know what they mean, or how they’ve changed over time to suit our purposes?
Join Seamas and participate in the pandemonium. Expect theatre, comedy, audience participation, silly games, Cornish history, country dancing and large inflatables.
There’s no need to book a ticket, just drop in!
