The Seven Ravens

Part of Puppet Animation Festival 2023.

12th of April at 1pm.

A Raven visits a young, unhappy girl.
Why are the birds gathering?
And what is the secret that Ada learns about her past?

Inspired by the Brothers Grimm fairy tale of the same name, this tells the story of Ada, a young girl who is unhappy at school. She is visited by a Raven and thrust into a dream world of quests, feathers and a Glass Mountain.

The audience is taken on a tiny world adventure over an extraordinary, felted landscape as Ada unlocks the secret the Raven is trying to tell her.

The Seven Ravens is a brand new and unique performance/installation by Tragic Carpet Theatre using an innovative mix of live puppetry, digital image capture, processing and display, needle felting and specially composed music and song.

Friday Evening Yoga and Movement Restorative Class @ Yoga Collective

In this class we get in touch with our fluid body, tissues and get to know ourselves and what moves and how and what doesn’t. Gradually we develop fluidity, lightness, a change in state which supports the shift to strenghtening and lenghtening work for a period, followed by deep rest.

I started practising in 1991, trained in the Iyengar system to senior level over 25 years and trained teachers during pandemic with the Body Symphonies teacher training. My way of teaching now is the result of integration of my experience and work as a previously Iyengar teacher as well as a craniosacral therapist and movement practitioner.

To book:
