Martin & Eliza Carthy: EAST
with special guests Sheema Mukherjee, Barney Morse Brown & Ewan Wardrop
East is an ambitious new project featuring Martin and Eliza Carthy with long-time collaborators Duotone and Sheema Mukherjee (Imagined Village, Transglobal Underground), and dancer and choreographer Ewan Wardop (Matthew Bourne, Formby, Shakespeare’s Globe, The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, The Bo Diddlers)
Martin and Eliza have spent the last few months compiling and curating a collection of musical and poetical works from the East of England. Their side of the country contains myths, legends, poems and ballads from the furthest North of Northumberland, through Hull right down to Suffolk, where you can also find East Anglian step dancing, here performed by Ewan with the band.
The show features diverse elements from epic stories (including Pete Morgan’s famous Robin Hood’s Bay poem “Drowned at Sea to Dead on Land”) to traditional dancing, with the joyful stepping of East Anglian rhythmic dance, and maybe a bit of solo Rapper thrown in.
Expect a connection to the land and the coast, great stories and a real sense of what the history and traditions of the East have to offer.
Commissioned by Norfolk and Norwich Festival.
