A one-off livestream production of Clog Dancing in Gweek from The Barns in Cornwall, celebrating 40 years of Kneehigh Theatre.
2020 was Kneehigh’s 40th year and they’d always planned to celebrate in style—with you! But then the pandemic struck and their lovely summer plans were scuppered.
Not to be deterred, they still want to throw a bash. So they’re inviting you to our rehearsal base and spiritual home in Cornwall, The Barns. Come in, look around, make yourself at home. You are their honoured guests. And who better to be your host than the one and only… Colin Pickering!
Hello! Colin Pickering here! Some of you might remember me from my infamous lecture tour of Cornish village halls 10 years ago when I was held hostage by two ne’er-do-wells and almost blown up by their exploding saffron-bun bomb-bra!
Well, I’m over that now. And I’m back in business with my new live show, CLOG DANCING IN GWEEK. Each month I unearth a jewel of Cornish culture—Goonhilly Earth Station, Flambards Theme Park, that bit of clifftop that Ross Poldark keeps galloping up and down… I couldn’t believe my luck when my favourite theatre company, The Kneehigh, agreed to let me into their secret rehearsal grotto!”
Join Colin Pickering as he lifts the lid on all things Kneehigh. The history! The mystery! Frolics and fireworks! Music and mayhem! Silly surprises and interactive insanity! And maybe a special guest or two. All from the comfort of your own home.
A guaranteed winter warmer.
