Cut. Pull red threads between trees to reveal underground root networks.
Investigate with French company, De Chair et d’Os, the fields of Wild Woodbury. Joyfully and simply, Five Seasons invites you to play with your senses. Blend into the landscape through a score, poetic cartography and ritual – chosen especially for Bere Regis, with the collaboration of expert forager Maria Fernandaz Garcia. Refine our relationship to the world, and come out of it nourished. Your senses will be highlighted – bare feet in the soft grass, an ant climbing a dandelion, the cracking of the wood, the caress of the wind.
Booking required for the performances on 23 and 24 September. This is a free ticketed event, please confirm your attendance beforehand using the ‘REGISTER’ button on this page.
The festival location has some uneven paved areas but mostly consists of undulating grassland, fields and rough tracks.
On Saturday 23 September there will be Audio Desciption, tactile tours and a BSL interpreter for performances of Songs for a Shifting Soil and Five Seasons. Please meet at the main information desk thirty minutes before the performance for more information.
Volunteers will also be available to provide help and information.
