Split Guitars & Other Tales

1 Jan 2012

Only six at a time can climb aboard and listen to the yarns of split guitars, broken cricket bats and wooden spoons. Direct the winds of fate to a story, chosen from hundreds that might have special significance for you. Commissioned in response to Lone Twin’s boat of memories, this intimate performance delves into the rich personal and social histories of objects. Enjoy lilting strains from Marcia’s sailor-boy band and mackerel fresh from the deep.

Commissioned & presented with The Basement as part of The Boat Project.
