This weekend, meet the Taniwha at Camden Fringe

on Wed, 08/17/2011 - 20:30

Since January of this year we've been working on a show about the Taniwha in the Thames. You know about it, right? It's been here since at least the time of Captain Cook.....

As part of the development process we're showing it as a work-in-progress at the Camden Fringe this weekend and we'd love it if you could make it along and let us know what you think.

TaniwhaThames is a show about home/not-home, belonging/not belonging, land and the water that runs between, beneath, around.

The Taniwha knows the mysteries of London and the folklore of the city. It knows your secrets and darkest fears. It is the pull of this dirty and excessive city when you yearn for another home. It is the feeling in the dark places, quiet corridors, long alleyways, of knowing that someone – something – is just ... over ... there.

TaniwhaThames, Directed by Stella Duffy
