Come with us on a ride, run away on horseback, from Wales to London, through forest and dale, to collect stories and dreams, find magic at the corner of the field and learn not to lose it again. The three performers throw the audience into a fanciful kaleidoscope of tales, cello suits, songs, movement and maybe even news snippets. Themes reach from pregnant teenagers to four leaf clovers, from the lady of the manor to an artist who catches the spirits of dead birds on paper. As there are a lot of intricate story-lines and the surroundings are not ideal, the audience needs to pay extra attention to hear every line – but it is well worth it.
Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, 15-26 Aug, 2.05pm.
