Secrets & Silences

Deb Winter and Ailsa Mair Fox Esyllt Harker Commission Winners 2021
Sunday 9 July, 1.30 – 2.30pm

A bright full moon sails over the forest, but always there are shadows. Two sisters, separated by a secret; one earth, troubled by crimes. The two storytellers take traditional story tropes and breathe new life into them in this gripping tale. Deb’s bold inventiveness is in full play as she delves into the darkness of the tunnel; Ailsa’s poetic vision and shamanic characters bring joy, hope and healing.
Ailsa’s inspired improvisations and songs on voice and cello cloak the whole piece in magic.
Suitable for ages 12+
Content Warning:
There are mature themes and murder.

Winner of the 2023 Esyllt Harker Prize will be announced.
