Anytime the Wind Can Change – Shadow Puppet Show

A beautiful, intimate evening of acoustic music and shadow puppetry. Suitable for all ages.

On November 1st, The New Shadow Cabinet and Oasis Farm Waterloo bring you an intimate evening of music and folklore.

Told through the age-old artform of shadow puppetry and music, Anytime The Wind Can Change shares with audiences the touching parable of two lonely giants on opposite sides of an ocean, performed by an international collective of world-class artists, puppeteers and musicians unexpectedly united through the turmoil of this year.

The performance will take place in a covid secure manner, there’ll be warm drinks to have, marshmallows to toast and we’ll all have a reason to be glad it’s getting darker earlier.

Total duration: 80 minutes

30 mins – Acoustic Concert, Benjamin Yellowitz

Benjamin Yellowitz takes the singer/songwriter format to new levels with his unique mix of mysterious, slow-burning pop worked into magic with his dark production style. Featured on several BBC Introducing Sessions, Benjamin has received considerable critical acclaim and is a rising star in the UK’s independent music scene.

10 minute interval

40 mins – Anytime The Wind Can Change

Two lonely giants fall in love across a vast sea, sending messages to each other on the wings of birds, but as peace becomes chaos in the wake of a disaster, cracks start to appear. Naut and Astrid float closer together as their people drift further apart – but in the darkest hours we sometimes find the best of humanity.

//

Anytime The Wind Can Change is a contemporary folktale about compassion in a time of chaos, originally written for Woodford Folk Festival’s Closing Ceremony (Australia’s largest annual outdoor performance), now reimagined in the charming medium of shadow. Told with simple yet beautifully detailed puppets and a moving live score, Anytime The Wind Can Change is a story for all ages that reminds us to consider the struggles and journeys of people who are brave enough to ask us for help.

Puppets by Caitlin Strongarm
