Folktales about trees for 7+ with music from wooden instruments
Stories: Fiona Dowling
Percussions: Andrew Ilsley
A scientist recently discovered that trees make music, that within them is a frenetic and incessant drum roll, a pulse of live, a heart beat. Like us humans, trees stand upright, have roots and arms. Trees and men have a special connection, a complicity that this show would like to celebrate.
You will hear a selection of folktales about trees from a diversity of cultures. As a breath between stories, you will hear the trees speak for themselves, under the fingers of the percussionist.
