This Tree Is A Story (about everything, including you, as told by me)
Through five overlapping and interwoven stories, This Tree is a Story – about everything, including you as told by me, explores the history of humans and our relationship with trees. Incorporating Slingsby’s internationally renowned theatre approach of shadow, light-play, song, live music, and miniatures, this world premiere production reminds us that we are all connected.
Created and performed by Slingsby’s Flying Squad, This Tree is a Story – about everything, including you as told by me, digs into the roots and climbs through the branches of ancient and personal stories of trees and how they shape our lives, cultures and future.
