Appearing at bluedot is SEED, a poetic, surprising and inspiring hitch hike on a journey from small acorns to the great oak tree. What if there is a fella whose job it is to dig those tiny holes that seeds set root in, who charges himself with watering, composting and protecting. A fella with a pottering shed —on wheels—always elbow deep in much and always playing a tune for his charges. Well there is, and his name is Wilford. SEED is an intimate and explosive show, full of captivating images, live and specially composed music. It is a day in the life of Wilford as he struggles against the odds and ends up sat relieved and, having been helped by festivalgoers to make it through the day, in a mature apple tree that sprouts out of his shed.
This show is sure to engage the crowds at bluedot, as it explores the fragility of planet Earth and new ways of connecting. SEED has been made possible and supported by the Northern Festivals Network, using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
