The Song of the Bones

Gig Theatre rooted in Irish Folklore

The story of Ireland's last Witch Trial

'The Song of the Bones' is a piece of dark, immersive storytelling gig theatre; merging our electronic pop music with puppetry and spoken word poetry, to tell the tale of the Islandmagee Witch trials in 1711

~

Using elements of traditional Irish folk tales, mysticism, and feminism, the show was created by Claire McCartney & Beccy Henderson of VOKXEN, featuring spellbinding narratives by award-winning performance poet Alice McCullough, haunting puppetry by Claire Roi Harvey (Star Wars/Jurassic World), and earthy musical percussion by David McLaughlin (Blue Man Group).

Available to book for the telling of macabre and chilling tales, to folks who love to hear them.  Get in touch.
