Mon 13 - Sun 19 Jan 2020
January Cave Sing, Bossiney (14 Jan)
Meet down at Bossiney Haven at 2pm and sing in the Bossiney cave with Neal Jolly. All songs taught by ear. Chants and rounds from around the world. Singing in the cave until coldness, darkness or the tide comes up, whichever happens first. Bring lanterns, hot drinks and if you’re brave, a swimming costume.
Many Moons, The Acorn, Penzance (17 Jan)
Many Moons by acclaimed writer, Alice Birch, follows four lonely Londoners as they tell stories, weave lies and confessions, reveal and conceal desires and regrets. All are plummeting towards one blistering afternoon in July. Through innovative storytelling, Rocket Box presents an award-winning production that interrogates the terrifying dark matter at the heart of their interconnected stories. The piece encourages audiences to consider loneliness, connection, and the importance of sharing problems. As a company, they draw on stand-up, circus, live music, spoken word, slam poetry, dance and cinema. Formed in 2018, Rocket Box are an emerging theatre company who are now about to embark on their debut national tour.
Cornwall based indie duo, Our Atlantic Roots, bring an uplifting blend of American and British alternative folk, with country bluegrass roots and harmonies that are rich and dynamic to Lusty Glaze Beach. Booking essential.
