A cross posting from Rachel’s Yardworks blog – it falls into this one as well.
Last Wednesday, I gave a talk on the connections between the Yardworks and local fairy mythology in Lancashire at the Harris Museum in Preston as part of the ‘Enchanted Worlds’ exhibition that is currently showing. The talk was well received and I lots of positive comments afterwards. I may post extracts from the talk later, or short extracts on video. In the meantime, here is an edited version of the ten minute shadow performance I created during the day with Adam Bennett, shadow puppeteering with myself, and Tom Woolsgrove, live music to accompany the talk.
