Spoken word, song, stunning visuals and soaring music come together in a ground-breaking Lit'n'Roll show.
Isambard Kerne, an Edwardian aviator is transported into another world - a land of shadows, monsters and wonders - where he is tested to his limit. With the help of a mysterious feathered guide, Merlin, Kerne must embark upon the
Way of the Windsmith - mastering the Four Winds - if he is to find his way home and help defeat the deadliest of enemies - Aveldra, the ultimate femme fatale - in a battle between the lost of history for the fate of worlds.
Be taken to another world!
Song of the Windsmith is based upon the five-volume Steampunk epic by Stroud-based author, Kevan Manwaring. It has been created in collaboration with Bristol-based musician James Hollingsworth. Images are provided by Cornwall-based artist Jonathan Hayter.
