8pm Sat 19th Jan 2019: The Big Blind (Arts Council funded national tour – one night only in Topsham!)

Dominic Kelly – Storyteller
Bridget Marsden – Violin
Leif Ottosson – Accordion

A boy stands on a lakeshore. Behind him: all he’s ever known. Ahead: a chance for love but a higher chance of death. He’s had a happy life, and a sheltered one. But his father gambled away that life, the debt cannot be paid in money and it won’t be his father who pays. Childhood is over…
Dominic, Bridget & Leif combine storytelling and music in a playful and gripping performance. They bring to life an ancient full-bloodied fairy tale for modern audiences, weaving versions from Norway, Scotland, Ireland and India with contemporary Scandinavian folk music. Through it they explore the consequences for the young when older generations fail to make adult decisions.
“…magical, haunting… a truly inspired performance… makes you sparkle from the inside out…” on The Devil’s Purse.
“…a bewitching fusion of storytelling and music that takes theatre right back to its origins… Bridget Marsden and Leif Ottosson beautifully fuse enchanting Nordic music with Dominic Kelly’s prose… complementing and accenting the narrative seamlessly.” on The Devil’s Purse
