Information:

PERFORMANCE STORYTELLING by BEN HAGGARTY

Dark, unsettling and utterly magical, join world-class storyteller, Ben Haggarty, as he slips behind the lights into the dark side of the fairground, where you risk getting more than you bargained for.

Via freak-show and moonshine bar, ready yourself for an intense and alarming journey through the ambivalent mythology of the Sandman. Here Marilyn Monroe is a target in a shooting gallery; the moon-landing is more than a side-show and the truth behind Warhol’s Silver Dream Factory is gradually revealed.

Flirting with Americana; drawing on urban legend, fairytale, myth and folklore, and paying oblique homage to Heinrich Von Kleist, ETA Hoffman, Hans Andersen and Nick Cave, Ben Haggarty surrenders his sanity to the magnetic pull of a ravenous moon.

Winner of Fringe First Award for Best Spoken Word - Brighton Festival 2013
