I am a Tree by Jamie Wood

By Jamie Wood 

In collaboration with George Ramsay, Wendy Hubbard and Dominic Kennedy

  • Wheelchair Access
  • Thu 27 Jul – Sat 29 Jul, 7:30pm

Venue: Downstairs

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! 

AN EDINBURGH PREVIEW.

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

"...I’LL BE HEADING TO THE VENUE AS SOON AS I CAN TO SEE CONSUMMATE CLOWN JAMIE WOOD IN I AM A TREE."
Picked by Lyn Gardner (The Guardian) as one of the top shows at the 2017 Fringe
