Naughty Japanese Badgers are coming to Brigsteer
‘Naughty Japanese Badgers’ by Sarah Rundle
Japan has many monsters. Alluring women who turn out to be foxes, flesh-eating hags, rat-goblins, spirits that lick dirty bathrooms.
Sarah will alert you to the cunning tricks of Badgers, using the ancient art of Kamishibai (paper-theatre), some sweets, a cudgel, and a length of rope…
On a wet Manchester evening, Sarah Rundle escaped into a warm performance café, and discovered Storytelling. She’s been nattering ever since – tales from Britain, China, the Middle East, Italy, and the Silk Road.
She has devised works for the British Council, Wellcome Foundation, Geffrye Museum, and the National Trust, and performed at Stockholm’s Fabula Story Café, the Nivesh Festival, Delhi, Kolkata Book Fair, and Festival at the Edge.
Her work has been described by Ben Haggarty as “truly magical….. it sparkles with a particularly glorious English humour.”
