The Wild Bride
After weeks of rehearsing intensely in a barn in South West England, Kneehigh have finally premièred their brand new show, The Wild Bride, at the Asylum in Cornwall. Kneehigh, one of Britain’s most innovative and exhilarating theatre companies have time after time pulled quirky and profound productions out of the bag such as The Red Shoes (2002) described as “stunning” by The Times and saw Artistic Director Emma Rice win a TMA Award for Best Director Award and the remake of the classic film Brief Encounter (2008) which is currently touring the US.
Kneehigh, renowned for their magical and creatively ingenious shows promise to bring to Dublin a fairy tale with an edge, a story of hope and healing that will take the audience on a journey of beauty and wisdom. This show is definitely one to catch if you want something more inspiring than the current doom and gloom.
Adapted & directed by Emma Rice, be expected to be blown away with incredible movement and dance, instinctive storytelling, devilish humour and a heady mix of live and found music. Charting a life from girlhood to womanhood using three women to represent the different chapters of life, this is a grown up romance for brave children and adults alike set in a stunning elemental world of leaves, petals, snow and flowers.
Attracting glowing praise and reviews from their recent première, this is the show to catch if you want to experience a Kneehigh production. Go wild and see The Wild Bride!
