The Devil’s Purse and The Other People

Beguiling, tricksy, highly-strung, and suspiciously helpful – the Little People are waiting in the shadows, beneath your feet, under the tables, and even in the cracks in the walls – and they’re waiting to prove just how hard it is to tell that they are there. On hot summer nights their world is a breath away and on long winter evenings they have far too much time on their hands…

Dominic Kelly, Bridget Marsden & Leif Ottosson fuse storytelling performance and music in a wild journey into the cinema of the imagination. A lost traveler finds himself guided through the mountain mists; a farmer marries an apparently perfect wife; a drunk gambles with a purse that is forever full, and an anxious mother watches her child turn into skin and bone…

Come spend some time in the company of Themselves, the Gentry Below, the Good Folk, the sylphs, the sprites, the fairies, and a labyrinth of stories.
