About The Event

PAIRED WITH Individual Medley

Sealfie: After the death of his father, Ronan is returning to his island home town that he no longer belongs to. Thea hopes of the loss of his mother decades before follow him, as does the memory of her disappearing into the night in a coat made of seal skin. Or was that just a story he tells himself? Inspired by the Scottish myth of Selkies and updated for today. Sealfie interweaves live music, puppet seals and human actors to dissect grief, fractured and unreliable memories and the stories we ‘re told to make it all easier.
