Where and when: Summerhall (Demonstration Room), Summerhall Place, Edinburgh, EH9 1PL Wednesday 3rd – Sunday 28th August 2022 (not 15th, 22nd), 19:50
What it’s all about… Dreams of the Small Gods tells the story of the awakening of Wild Woman. Naked, unaware and unselfconscious, she explores her surroundings, more animal than human. Her growing consciousness attracts the attention of a creature from the spirit world, a primal deity who sparks her curiosity and compels her to transform. She changes her physicality, drawing power from the merging of animal, human and spirit self. Inspired by the timeless wisdom of faerie tales, mythology and ancient ritual, Dreams of the Small Gods is a blend of aerial circus, masked ritual and performance art.
You’ll like it if… You have an interest in mythology, folklore and the lives of animals and plants. This show is interesting especially for women of all ages. It’s also interesting for those who want to see circus presented in an unusual way, or who like masked theatre or theatre which focuses on the body and has no spoken words.
You should see it because… It offers the opportunity to share in deep connection with Earth and with body. This show is for anyone who wants to see circus presented in an aesthetic that deviates vastly from traditional expectations. The audience will take away a little piece of primal memory.
Anything else we should know…: Dreams of the Small Gods is a blend of aerial circus, masked ritual and performance art. This show is interesting especially for women of all ages and explores the awakening of Wild Woman. I hope the Audience share in the deep connection of this show.
