Beowulf

Theatre

Michael and Wendy Dacre of Raventales present

Beowulf

To cap it all, come back in the evening with your family to be enthralled by Michael and Wendy's nationally renowned performance of 'Beowulf' with shadow puppet illustrations - just as in a book - but these pictures move! Hugh Lupton, of the Company of Storytellers, said of this piece: "There's something wonderful about shadow puppets, they delight the eye without ever giving away too much. And when they're coupled with vivid storytelling the pictures are both internal and external at the same time. In this performance of Beowulf, Michael and Wendy Dacre bring the two art forms together with great accomplishment, making a rich tapestry of language and image and breathing immediate life into an epic tale that's at least twelve hundred years old."
