Sweetshop Revolution - Tree at artsdepot
Meet Doug, your National Trust Guide for the evening. Leading you on a tour of a woodland, he’ll be illuminating the wonders of the Yew Tree, The Mighty Oak and all of his other close friends. Doug is a vegan with a secret penchant for barbecuing chaffinches and other than that, just a normal nature lover. You may get to see his ‘I am a Tree’ dance to Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending. And you may even get a cup of cider he has pressed himself.
He is joined by a city boy, who makes conceptual art in his spare time and lives in an Edwardian house, which he has stripped down to his own minimalist idyll. He is a bit lonely, but he has a lot of money so it’s okay. Or is it? He knows a great deal about many things, but could not tell you the name of a single tree.
Tree is a site responsive dance theatre work for four men looking at how we connect to nature.
