‘The Temporary Research Centre for Stories, Myth and Fables”- 1

16- 17 April, Barbican Arts Trust BlackHorse Road Studios, London.
With Mark Scott Wood.

A weekend experimenting with new way of researching folklore by constructing an environment for the public to tell us stories.

Among the rich material we gathered were stories of mistaken owl identities, things that teenagers leave in forests, encounters with the Beast of Bodmin, south Devon lucky architectural features, cats in walls, haunted lakes, death in the rearview mirror, headless horsemen, frenzied highwaymen, The Lady from The Big House, the differences between witches and wizards and the BOO HAG.
