WHAT'S ON in SEPTEMBER

Rod & Eddie

TRISTAN LANGLOIS
"Silence and the Wizard's Laugh"
FRIDAY 29 SEPTEMBER 2017
£7 admission

In a time after Arthur, when dragons roamed and wizard's hid, when men were women and women were men - a mysterious storyteller weaves dreams and weathers nightmares to survive. Tristan Langlois recounts the oddly modern medieval Roman de Silence, a 700 year old exploration of gender, indentity, fantasy and farce

Tristan ran the award-winning heritage theatre company Past Pleasures for many years, during which time he told tales in (and was occasionally slung out of) most of the great castles and manor houses of England), and he continues to work for museums and galleries as a storyteller whether they want him to or not. He specialises in the epic, the obscure, the scurrilous and the obscene delivered with relish and what he hopes is engaging charm


STORYTELLING

The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives.  They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.
