1927 Presents: Roots

5 October 2021 to 30 October 2021 London

“‘A delightfully diverse, playfully macabre and wryly comic take on the rich, but neglected heritage of folk stories’ «««« The Telegraph

Making its London premiere after its UK debut at the Edinburgh International Festival 2019, Roots is a medley of folktales brought to life with 1927's signature fusion of handcrafted animation and storytelling. Tales of tyrannical ogres, magic bird's hearts and very, very fat cats are told with a live score involving Peruvian prayer boxes, donkey’s jaws, violins and musical saws. Roots playfully considers the narratives of the past and how they might shape the stories of our future.

Writer & Director Suzanne Andrade said, “After 18 months of cancelled touring we’re delighted that at last Roots is back on stage and the company is back in London. We’ve missed good nights out telling tales, sharing stories and meeting audiences. Where better to head to share Roots' ragtag collection of folk jokes and twisted tales than London’s wondrous Wilton’s Music Hall.”
