We came from here and there, through the chinks and the cracks in the boundaries between this world and the other to help Rima and Tom make a film. They are hoping to convert a beautiful 1960s Bedford RV truck into a travelling circus/theatre/home. This is the plan; to turn this....
We gathered under the trees, an uncanny community of strangeness and creativity,
some human, some not.
There were wonders aplenty .... an Elven Princess and an magical Owl Woman on patient and tireless Gypsy horses. Jugglers, magicians, clowns and strong men, musicians, dancers and curious circus acts, all carrying a little bit of 'other' and of 'edge' within their being.
The idea is - "to make something amazing, a device for spreading beauty and kindling imaginations, a spectacular creation to reignite the old enchantments hiding at the edges of things, and bring wonder back into the greying world."
By the end of the afternoon we had made a film (under the expert guidance of film maker Annabel Allison of Wax Films) which is what launched Tom and Rima's crowdfunding campaign.
The film is here. it's well worth a watch just for it's own beauty, but please do donate if you can.
I'm the crow banging a drum!
