Dominic Kelly, Bridget Marsden & Leif Ottoson - The Big Blind
A boy stands on a lakeshore. Behind him is all he’s ever known. Ahead: a chance for love but a much higher chance of death. He’s had a happy life, and a sheltered one. But his father gambled away that life, the debt cannot be paid in money and it won’t be his father who pays. Childhood is over…
Combining storytelling and music into a playful and gripping performance, this ancient, full-blooded fairy tale is brought to life by storyteller Dominic Kelly and musicians Bridget Marsden and Leif Ottoson. Weaving tales from Norway, Scotland, Ireland and India with contemporary Scandinavian folk music, they explore the consequences for the young when older generations fail to make adult decisions.
