Flying Monk, The
Flying Monk, The
Soop presents the remarkable true story of Eilmer, the Malmesbury monk who tried to fly. Hampshire's vibrant, innovative new company has been delighting audiences in the south of England with its genre-defying blend of physical theatre, puppetry, and inventive storytelling, and now they come to London in a tour that coincides with the 1000th anniversary of Eilmer's 'flight'. As Malmesbury Abbey prepares anxiously for a royal visit, Brother Eilmer keeps nipping up the bell-tower with a book about Daedalus and some food for the jackdaws. Meanwhile, bored with plundering the same old towns along the Bristol Channel, the Vikings have decided to take a trip further inland. As the villagers meet the pillagers, the followers of Odin find the church-bell appealing, and Ethelred tries not to swap his kingdom for a Norse. But where on earth is Eilmer?
Devised by Nathan Chapman, Sarah Hutchinson, Peter Henderson, Sian Green And Henry Oastler with music by Denise Baugh And Kevin Jacks
Komedia Studio bar, Brighton May 2010
