Ever thought of creating something seemingly impossible? Building something bonkers with no regard for whatever anyone might think?
The Castle Builder tells real stories about people who have created the most amazing things, often in secret without any regard for convention: From the inmate in a psychiatric ward who built an entire castle on a remote headland, to the maker who creates a new piece of work during each performance, this show invites you to a night full of dancing and song to celebrate the art of creation, for the sake of it.
‘It holds its audience, tenderly, in the palm of its hand, lifts us to the stars, then places us gently back down on earth, with a reminder that there’s always time to live better.’
‘Funny, educational and most importantly, inspiring.’
