What they say

Take the plunge, the water’s lovely, taste the wine and the salty bubbly On a storm filled night when clouds were the colour of bad tempers, the briny sea separated Neptune from his son Neleus. But it’s been years and today, something has washed up on the beach that is neither fish nor bird nor boat. It’s the morning of The Neptunalia Ball, but what or who has arrived? Told through dance, story and installation, this is an odyssey of growing up and leaving home. Of prodigal sons and daughters, tattoo parlours, journeys and mysteries.

Cscape Dance Company collaborate with writer Anna Maria Murphy (Kneehigh/BBC Radio 4) and Cornish dancer/choreographer Tom Jackson Greaves (Matthew Bourne/Kneehigh) to bring you Neptunalia at Trebah: a feast for the heart, soul and belly; culminating in celebrations, food, drinks and dancing on the beach.

What we say

Leaving home is a story we all relate to: to search out independence, to support ourselves, to be closer to work, family, the sea; to travel in the name of a better life. Through wit, warmth, beauty and dancing, Cornwall’s leading dance company will take us all on a journey in which we’ll recognise a Neptune, a mother, and a child. A delight for all the family!

Access: Please note this is a promenade performance and will take place on foot moving around the garden. Sensible footwear, dress for the weather, and for the late show on August 11th, bring a torch! NB: There is a bar on the beach at the end of the performance. Food also available, though it should be pre-ordered (through the box office) to avoid disappointment.
