Told in Gold Schools Performances
“Once upon a time, words began to vanish from the language of children. They disappeared so quietly that at first no-one noticed. Fading away like water on stone. The words were becoming lost, no longer vivid in children’s voices no longer alive in their stories “
So begins Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane’s award-winning book The Lost Words. Told in Gold uses Rob’s delicious language and Jackie’s stunning illustrations to bring audiences into a cosy goldfinch nest theatre to watch the book come alive with movement, language, song and projected image.
The cast of actors and dancers will share the story of the lost words with audiences before taking them into the woods to seek, find and speak the lost words together.
On Friday 27 March and Tuesday 31 March, Undersong Productions will bring their outdoor theatre performance, complete with Goldfinch Nest theatre to the grounds of The Sill. Spend a day at The Sill and combine a performance with one of our other Lost Words school workshops.
