Twa Pirate Quines

Manipulate 2020

Summerhall - Basement Spaces


"My great gradma was a pirate."

"No, really she was. I found this old trunk, see, in the attic… figured it out."

Shadow puppetry, song and storytelling, inspired by the true-life stories of Anne Bonny and Mary Read, women caught up in the lawless, larger than life Caribbean mercantile world of the 17th century. This dreamlike piece celebrates the wild and fierce life on the sear and the relationship of people to the natural world.
