Dreaming the Night Field

Date: 2 Apr 2019

Presented by one of the UK-based storytelling company, Adverse Camber, Dreaming the Night Field melds myth with haunting live music to evoke the Celtic spirit.

Acclaimed storyteller Michael Harvey, composer and musician Stacey Blythe and singer Lynn Denman perform a retelling of one of the oldest Celtic myths, taken from the pages of the revered and ancient text, the Mabinogion.

Set in medieval Wales, it follows the story of Gwydion, a magician and nephew to the King, who provokes a war between North and South Wales and unleashes a chaos of consequences. Conjured from flowers, an intoxicatingly beautiful woman is torn between desire and duty, with fateful results.

English and Welsh are artfully woven together to bring to life ancient voices and living landscapes for a truly exhilarating tale of honour, justice, good versus evil, and the deepest love.
