Baking, Making and Scraww

14 Aug

The day started with us making Chocolate Croissants together.

Chocolate Croissant

I told the LiveWires about the show, Scraww, that we were going to see this evening at Trebah and that we would all be birds and they as children, would be fledglings. ‘We need wings!’  was their reaction so  we spent all morning designing and making wings!

The show was brilliant and thoroughly enjoyed by both LiveWires. The wireless technology worked a treat  and the whole event was so exciting for them both. If you live in Cornwall and can find/borrow some children to take, you will experience something rather beautiful and very imaginative. Click on any photo for the bigger version and detail.

Please forgive me for not reading blogs, replying to comments right now. As you can no doubt tell, every moment is taken up with the lovely LiveWires.

From the Trebah website:

“The birds of the world have gathered; join the flock on an epic quest to find the legendary Simorgh bird. A feather fuelled, technically immersive journey into Persian poetry… prepare to elect your new king!
 
This summer Trebah Garden and Gaggle Haus present the epic Persian tale SCRAWW, told via an immersive soundtrack created by international sound designer and composer Max Pappenheim. Audiences will don “silent disco style” headphones, join a flock and put on their feathers as they get led through the garden, experiencing live performance blended with Max’s score. Paths and plots twist as the flock move through this truly immersive soundscape before reaching the finale on Trebah’s picturesque private beach.
 
SCRAWW is an exciting co-production between Trebah and Gaggle Haus, introducing international talent to the landscape and performing arts sector of Cornwall. “A genre-bending operatic and digital piece of pure perfection!”
 
The Gaggle Haus team includes Director Anna Pool (opera, theatre and music maker); Lila Palmer (librettist) and Anna Driftmeir (scenographer and production designer), a team of acclaimed makers, who have worked across Europe and in the United States.”

    I love that you made your own wings to go see the show. I would have had to make a pair for myself had I been there! It looks like something that I would have loved to see too. No worries about my behalf about blog reading/comments. You have Live Wires to enjoy and that’s far more important!
