brilliance

 

1948 and 1963, winter. Everyone is gathering in the village hall.

Lightening has struck the hall roof.  Mrs Atkinson has called the repairman –a man who can fix a creaking door, chimneys that smoked. And in he comes with his daughter, bright blue eyes full of brilliance, like an animal in from the woods.

Long after its arrival in the city, the slow process of rural electrification is starting to illuminate every corner and crevice of village life. As the dark evenings hold us in, 240 volts of alternating current and the humble electric light bulb allows us to gather and sing long into the night.

Brilliance is a celebration of our ability to connect and find the light in a bright new world.

From the company that brought you It’s A Wonderful Life, The Iranian Feast and Yørgjin Oxo, we now bring you Brilliance a show with music made especially for village halls.

Touring in November-December 2017. Final tour schedule to be confirmed.
