THE MAGICIAN’S APPRENTICE

PRESENTED BY SALLY POMME CLAYTON
Bewitching spoken word from Sally Pomme Clayton as she opens her suitcase, finds smoke and mirrors and sets off on a fairytale quest to discover real magic!

With a top hat from a junk shop and mail-order wand, pioneering storyteller and writer Sally Pomme Clayton explores the secret world of the magician.

In this intimate, enchanting performance she mixes fact with fiction, fragments of myth with antique jokes, dazzling fairytales with snippets of science, forgotten folklore with mysterious images on tarot cards. With a song on her mandolin and a spotted handkerchief she casts a shimmer of stories, shifting from humour to horror, romance to rumour searching for real magic. She combines bewitching spoken word with strange musical sounds, an old suitcases and a magical puzzle that each member of the audience can take home!

The performance asks why apprentices have always been depicted as female and magicians male? Then turns magic on its head with the story of the most powerful female magician of all, Elena the Wise. In this slight-of-hand world objects talk, girls become doves, the magician goes mad and you can enter another world!

Join Pomme as she opens her suitcase, finds smoke and mirrors, and sets off on a fairytale quest to discover what is real, what’s illusion, who is the apprentice and who’s the teacher?
