"A beautiful piece of work" - STUART MACONIE, BBC 6 MUSIC
Featuring the voice of Alan Moore and the music of Oddfellow's Casino.
Combining music, animation and archive film with a captivating monologue, David Bramwell takes audiences on a dreamy candle-lit journey, in search of the supernatural secrets of our rivers, and a drowned village which has long haunted his memories.
Aided by a witch and magician, Alan Moore, Bramwell travels back in time to battle with his thalassophobia (the fear of ‘what lurks beneath’) and to unearth the myths and rituals of our rivers, and their symbolic association with feminine power.
At the end of the show there will be a 10 minutes Q&A, with a particular focus on Leeds own river, The Aire.
David Bramwell is a Sony-Award winning presenter for BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4, having made programmes on subjects ranging from Ivor Cutler to time travel. He has won awards for ‘Outstanding Theatre’ and ‘Best Comedy’ for his one-man shows and is the author of The Haunted Moustache, The No9 Bus to Utopia and The Odditorium.
