When I am still for any length of time, someone finds me and tells me about their life. My girlfriend says this makes me like a tree that all dogs want to piss up. Slow man tree.

Granddad taught me what I know about listening. And now there’s a gap in my landscape.  Last year I walked 150 miles back to where my grandparents were born, to look for what I’ve lost- a homemade pilgrimage, returning to roots, slow motion time travel.

The show is something else entirely. A dance party with ghosts, in a forest, in a theatre. A hopping ritual. An invitation to drink deep: to face the shadows that growl on your insides and laugh big.

Hold on tight! 


"This isn't wacky for wacky's sake. It's oppositional and fierce and idealistic." - WhatsOnStage on Jamie Wood’s previous show O No!
