The Garden

Outdoor theatre where the actors sway on poles in the air. The performers share three stories about grace, growing up and imagination.

Gravity-defying outdoor theatre. A troupe of nomadic storykeepers (the Keeper of Dreams, Keeper of History, Keeper of Song and Keeper of Names), shares three stories of grace, growing up and imagination. For a brief moment in time, the Keepers open their garden-ritual and invite you to their ceremony of renewal, transformation, and harmony.

Music fills the space as artists take to four-metre-high sway poles to create stories in the air.

Original idea by Greenwich+Docklands International Festival.

The performance on Thursday 6 September at 6pm is a preview.
