Orford, the Suffolk coast, 1167. A fisherman hauls up a mysterious catch: a scaly, glistening creature from the depths of the sea. Man or monster? Is the wild man barbaric or simply free from the constraints of society? A tale from English folklore of freedom, kindness, and the strange wild song of the sea.
The Wild Man of Orford features an exciting combination of handmade puppets, live theatre and medieval music, and sand, glass and shadow animations.
Following a sold out run at Brighton Fringe, The Wild Man of Orford was part of The Sea of Stories Season at Sweet Venues for Edinburgh Fringe 2015 and has been shortlisted for the 2015 Fringe Sustainable Practice Award by the Center for Sustainable Practice in the Arts and Creative Carbon Scotland.)
