When: Thursday 17th April

Time: 7.30pm

Where: The Orangery, Back Lane, Wakefield, WF1 2TG

Who & What: Join Tim Padmore of Gearshift Theatre on a journey around the world as he tells giant stories and decides which is the giant story for our time.

 

Listen to him telling the story of Mkun’ga M’Bura who lives in the water and kills and eats a whole tribe and how the one surviving boy takes his revenge.  Find out about friendly giants and two headed giants on Rotuma in the Pacific. Guess how a young Chuckchi man steals a wife who had been shared by the giants Tynagirgin and Gitgilin.

 

But which of these or other stories will he choose?

 

Tim will be doing a two week tour by bicycle of the ‘Giants’ performance which will take in Kendal, Lancaster, Preston, Liverpool, Manchester, Huddersfield, Wakefield, Doncaster and Hull. Tim Padmore says, ‘There are giant stories in almost every culture but, facing climate change, do they give us hope?  Who are the giants? How can we overcome them?’
