Through live storytelling, peep boxes, and projection, the audience are drawn into a story circle where ancient tales of boggarts and mermaids hold hands with contemporary accounts of supernatural landscapes and uncanny visitors.
This show is a collaboration between storyteller, Jacqueline Harris, of whose retellings Kevin Crossley-Holland has said, “Delight in their kick, their lyrical moments, their sense of mystery, their kindness”, and artist Marjan Wouda, of whom Sir Kyffin Williams RA has said, “Here is someone whose work is indeed true sculpture. She gives an almost surreal twist to her work that immediately makes it thought provoking.”
“The Headless Woman and other Delights” is a multi-media storytelling show that jumps and leaps across a known and unknown country, drawing stories from the places where landscape and imagination meet. Some are old, having jostled their way down generations, whilst others are first person up to the minute experiences, that live in the territory between our inner and outer geographies.
Jacqueline builds a transient map of stories as Marjan’s uncanny and suggestive imagery is brought to life through Adam York Gregory’s animation and live projection.
