Cornwall LivingIssue #121

It’s showtime!

Live performances at Trebah Garden’s amphitheatre and across the garden are now on sale, with lots to look forward to!

That’s right, tickets are now available for interactive children’s shows, an epic Cornish saga, plays from multi-award-winning theatre companies, stories of human biology, and more. But that’s not all! The Trebah team are doing things a little differently this year and announcing upcoming events in waves, so keep looking out for Trebah’s events emails as they announce more theatre, feasts, live music, vegetable takeovers, and their brand-new promenade show through the garden. For a taste of what’s to come, here are just a few of the exciting shows recently announced for the warmer months ahead…

A one-woman show about outdoor swimming and how it can keep you afloat, this production from Liz Richardson and ImPossible Producing is full of humour, heart, live music, projection and an optional swim from Trebah’s beach.
SWIM is a tender tale based on the true story of Liz who, after time away living in the city, returns to the hills of the Lake District, where tragedy rocks the lives of
an entire community.

The Munch Mission

Do you possess the wit, nerve and skill to become a CIA agent? From the creatives at Brave Bold Drama, The Munch Mission is a playable family theatre show where those participating will work with agents, Kahlo and Dali to solve a fiendishly sneaky art heist and recover a world-famous artwork that’s gone missing from Oslo National Museum. 

Souls & Cells

This new, contemporary dance duo – Akeim Toussaint and Crystal Zillwood – sees the coming together of two distinctive artists, who build an artistic universe through embodied explorations of ancestry and biology; what makes us different, and what unites us on a universal level? Drawing on their experience in creating solo dance works, Souls & Cells creates a dialogue between the crossing of heritages and stories in relation to human biology, exploring differences and commonalities whilst inviting the audience to see their own bodies and stories in a different way. Garden entry from 4pm included within the ticket price.
