A Vanished Kingdom Performance as part of Marchland Season

What can we say about our show; A Vanished Kingdom? Not much, since it’s actually mostly your show and you’ve yet to devise it! What we can say is that, with the aid of artists and performers from the Marchland season, we’ll be presenting the audience with the stories, songs, dances, artwork, history, geography… from across the European borderland and…

Maiden in The Moor as part of Marchland Season

Early-music specialists Maiden in the Moor revive for us the music of Occitania, a vanished kingdom that once straddled Southern France and Northern Spain. The Occitan Troubadours sang of loyalty, love and longing, and their language and music survived through travelling poets and illuminated songbooks long after their culture was devastated by the Albigensian Crusade. Their work had a profound…

Maiden in the Moor & Sefiroth as part of Marchland Season

In this double bill of work the revived music; a vanished culture is set alongside the living, evolving traditions of its banished people.

Later in the evening, Sefiroth once again will…
