Once Upon a Story
Inne Goris (Belgium)
Once Upon a Story (formerly known as Dregs) - created within Manchester Town Hall, a treasure trove of stories of and about childhood, where anything is possible and audiences find themselves at the heart of the action. Inne Goris presents 4 pieces of work for the 2013 Manchester International Festival. Go to MIF13 for more details and to book for all these shows.
ZigZagZigZag (ages 9+, World Première) – A story about adventurous friendship, unfortunate circumstances and the pain of letting go.
Once Upon a Time (ages 4+, UK Première) – A sparkling, wordless performance using material from classic fairytales, taking the whole family on an adventure into the dark heart of the fairytale…and out again!
Daydream (ages 3+) – Come in. Settle down. Close your eyes and listen. Are there bee living in your ears? Has the sea stopped crying? Is the house sighing? Let the music caress you (inside a 40′ shipping container). Watch here.
Long Grass (ages 15+, UK Première) – A challenging and thought provoking full-length installation performance for younger and older adults, inspired by the dreams and memories of child soldiers. Long Grass encourages us to ask questions and draw parallels between the soldiers’ experiences and our own lives
In her work, Inne Goris balances on the edge between performance, visual art, theatre and dance.
Inne Goris’ Daydream creates a solitary, intimate atmosphere, outside of time, where music and sound stir the imagination. Cocooned inside the white tent, each visitor will embark on a unique journey of the mind, tracing the delicate routes of half-remembered stories, making their own way through memory and fiction. Back outside, in the real world, the container is just a container. But who’s inside it now? What are they thinking?
“Daydream makes you dream, thanks to the intimate setting and the music specially composed by Dominique Pauwels. This is the ideal way to start fantasising and playing with children” Knack July 2011
