Shows on literature and missing bees

IDLE Motion will present their Total Theatre Award-nominated show, Borges and I, at The Terry O’Toole Theatre in North Hykeham.

Taking place on Wednesday October 17, this piece of visual theatre explores the life of surrealist writer, Jorge Luis Borges, who questioned and translated the world around him.

Through the use of multimedia and his evocative stories, Idle Motion bring forth images of labyrinths, tigers and a universe of libraries. Meanwhile, a couple meet at a haphazard and ill-conceived book group, brought together through their shared love of literature.

Using imaginative staging and inventive storytelling, Idle Motion draw parallels between Borges’ life, his work and his readership, revealing a vivid portrait of a man on the brink of blindness.

The show begins at 7.30pm. Tickets £10, £8 for concessions, £5 for under 18s. Tel: 01522 883311.

* JOIN Angel Heart Theatre for their most enchanting children’s show yet at the Terry O’Toole Theatre on Saturday October 20.

Albert lives alone with his beloved honey bees on Dartmoor, a mysterious land where nothing is as it seems. One day a stranger steals Albert’s bees, but a little Pisky called MazyMeg, promises to rescue them from Dark Dewer, the wicked wizard.

Weaving threads of Devon folklore with an original soundtrack by Dartmoor musicians and puppetry, lose your way with MazyMeg and all the characters she meets along the way as she tries to bring home Albert’s bees. Tickets cost £5 or £18 for a family of four. The performance starts at 3pm.
