Description

Five storytellers open a treasure chest. Inside there is a range of objects, all prompting a unique story – but it's up to the audience to choose what they want to hear. From the Hanging Gardens of Babylon to Cornwall's pirate coves, The Earth Untold uncovers the ways in which the environment has sheltered us, protected us, sculpted our traditions and played a starring role in our folklore and mythology. Accompanied by live music and movement, this is a show about cowbells and ice skates, fossils and thunderstorms, constellations and nightingales and Pandora's Box.

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 97 days ago

"...imaginatively draws parallels between the natural world, folk stories and Greek mythology. [...] It’s particularly evocative to hear lyrical descriptions of flora, fauna, animals and birds while sitting in a venue surrounded by them"
