SHOW DAYSAugust 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th (Special Music Event on 29th) (No Show 30th) 31st September 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
Two worlds exist in one space
And there are many ways in between
Through the backs of cupboards
Down rabbit holes
Through enchanted mirrors
And of course
Beyond the paths
And you my dear friends are invited!
In the enchanting tales
Of a wild and wonderful world
Choose your words well
For I think you’ll find
The world will be exactly as you describe it!
Multi award winning Rogue Theatre returns to the woods this August with their star entangled woodland crown of the summer season; the premier opening of their new book of wild and fantastical tales.
“Immersive theatre at its best” Wild Woodland Summer Ball is Rogue’s free-spirited celebration of wildness, set in one of Cornwall’s most breath-taking landscapes; Tehidy Woods, North Cliffs.
A forest is not a collection of trees
A forest is not a park
A forest breathes
It has a heart
It has ears that hear
And eyes that see
A forest is alive
It has history
…And between the leaves and the trees and the flowers of the spellbinding path,
Rogue weaves magic;
Like the silver Moon dancing with the mossy King of The Wood, or a glistening bead of Giants blood, or a circus procession just passing the heavens, or a dancer in the kingdom beneath the tide, like a breathtaking beauty in a dreamless sleep, or a hunter with a heart for his lover to eat, like the flowers beneath flying faeries feet, or a cauldron of broth on dragon fire heat; Wild Woodland Summer Ball is an exuberant, bewitching, and fun journey into a very real story world of enchantment.
Ignite your imagination with an immersive theatre adventure for all the senses, and let the woodland air feed the flames, set it ablaze with thrilling brand new tales, enthralling live music, otherworldly performance, explosive acrobatics, mesmerizing fire, wildly beautiful dance, free face painting, the chance to create a wonderful woodland craft decoration and at the end, we all shall dance together, you are invited…It is a ball after all!
Forest creature costumes, faerie Dress, otherworld outfits, party frocks, wild life masks, funny hats, forest finery, frippery, feathers and fancy hairdos are encouraged though not essential. (Grown-ups as well as children)
Reasonably priced hot refreshments, cold drinks, beer, wine and cider will be available to buy.
Rogue’s epic Wild Woodland Vegetable Stew will also be available to buy. (Served from a giant cauldron bubbling on the fire).
Toilets are situated near the performance area.
For your woodland adventure we recommend you bring shoes for adventure (wellies if it has been raining) and a torch if you are coming for the evening performance.
There will be hay bales to sit on, though feel free to bring cushions or fold out chairs (if you don’t mind carrying them).
The event lasts about 2 ½ hours and takes place in the woodland so come prepared whatever the weather. (We will use our fabulous canopy to cover the audience if it should rain)!
The path twists and turns and is bumpy under foot but should be fine for a rugged buggy!
(and 3 times a day on the dates marked with a star)
The first at 2.30pm (The Sunlight Ball)
And the second at 7.30pm (The Twilight Ball with lit path to leave)
23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th*, 27th, 28th
Rogue will be presenting a one night only special music gig at the heart of the woods on the 29th – details to be revealed
(No show on the 30th)
1st, 2nd*. 3rd
*Starred dates – Wilder Woodland Summer Ball Shows
Rogue is always delighted to host all audience members at all shows though over the years we have been asked by some with wilder family members (we have a couple ourselves!) if we would consider adding “Wilder Shows” to our runs.
We have decided to pilot this idea this summer and have added 2 special “Wilder Woodland Summer Ball” shows on the Saturdays (marked with a *) during the run specifically for those who would feel more relaxed in the company of others who have wilder ones too!
These shows will be slightly shorter.
Wilder Summer Ball Shows start at 11am on –
Saturday 26th August
Saturday 2nd September
