Iron-Brow and Thorn-Coat: Buddhafield Festival

Hedgespoken’s new storytelling piece IRON-BROW AND THORN-COAT is a retelling of a classic Lithuanian folk-tale. Steeped in old magic and half-familiar memories, this beguiling tale of magical transformation, love, betrayal and endurance brings together storytelling by Tom Hirons, puppetry and masked performance by Helen Aldrich, music by Louis Bingham and Griselda Sanderson, design by Rima Staines and co-direction by Howard Gayton and Sarah Vigars.
