Shed & Shrine of Innocence
- The Pit at The Vault Festival
Shed - In a dank, dripping, draughty home-made shed, a lonely soul contemplates life beyond her own four walls. Two physical storytellers invite you to catch a glimpse of a someone who hibernates away from the rest of the world. They play out the humorous banality of human existence. Yet through the real and imaginary relationships that map out her life, fleeting between boredom and optimism, layers begin to be shed. Underneath it is strange and perhaps amusing. Is it so bad after all? No-one else is looking. Shrine of Innocence - A man is building a shrine to a woman with whom he is completely obsessed. The presence of the woman herself is by turns dark, beautiful and grotesque as he tries to make her stand up but she keeps falling down. In time the shrine is built to his satisfaction until the only thing missing is the woman herself. This scenario is repeated three times with different couples each telling a new story which is open to your interpretation.
