A Heart at Sea

Friday 16 November 2018 @ 7:00 pm

Lumsden Village Hall

Friday 16 November 2018


Half a String

Ages 7+   

A Heart at Sea is a piece of storytelling gig-theatre. Stunning visuals and beautiful live music come together to create a breath-taking spectacle. Original songs written and performed by Avi Simmons, and haunting live looped soundscapes, tell the story of a Boy who bottles up his heart and throws it into the sea. Intricate puppets are swept through transforming wooden worlds that are held within a beautifully carved chest. Puppets roam on this unique contraption to recount the story of whales, tiny boats, and beards. Join our hero as he embarks on a wild, nautical journey to recover his missing heart. This is a piece of heart-warming storytelling that will resonate with all ages.

Half a String’s A Heart at Sea is the collaboration between indie-folk artist Avi Simmons and visual artist/puppeteer Peter Morton. The piece was grown through a love for storytelling, music and puppets and was launched at Wise Words Festival in April 2016. Since, A Heart at Sea has been awarded funding from the Art Council England and Canterbury City Council to finish the show ready for touring in Spring 2017. The company have also taken the show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where they enjoyed rave reviews and sold out audiences.
