Outrider Anthems

Song of Crow

Venue: South Street (Directions)

Fri 1 Sep to Sat 2 Sep

Advisory age: 13+



 Sell-out fusion of theatre, dance, music and film returns to Reading as part of Festival of the Dark 2017
Outrider Anthems presents the creation myth
It does not have to be this way; was not always this way. Creator Crow, crotchety, passionate, magical, returns to Planet Earth for two nights only, pep talk fizzing. A mythical journey through spoken word, dance, music, movement, film, music, light.
By exploring our sense of connection, threatened climate and shaken communities, Crow reflects on what damage has already been done to the earth; ‘What we have is all we have. And what we know is all we know. And where we are is where we are.’ 
And so Crow gives us the Earth, as she is now in her wounding, all over again. The choice is ours…'where will we go from here?' Will we continue on this path until there are no bees, no trees, nothing but dead land and dead seas? Or is there a better way?
Come and see this unique event, exploring the most urgent issue of our time. Funded by Arts Council England and supported by a number of organisations in Reading.
