Neil Gaiman reads:
The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains
Illustrations: Eddie Campbell Music: FourPlay String Quartet
In a revolutionary new concept of synchronised multi-media storytelling, Neil Gaiman will read aloud his story The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains. The renowned artist Eddie Campbell (From Hell) has illustrated the story and FourPlay String Quartet have created an entirely new underscore to the piece.
‘It was simply amazing. …it was more than just a reading. It was a performance full of subtlety and nuance… Gaiman kept 2000 people on the edge of their seat.’ (S.T.S.O.O.I. BLOG)
Created and performed for a sell out crowd at Sydney Opera House’s world-renowned Graphic Festival, then repeated a year later for cutting edge festival Mona Foma in Tasmania, this haunting tale of adventure, revenge and treasure, told as a hybrid between a storyteller, an artist and a string quartet comes by popular demand to London for these two performances only.
Friday 4 and Saturday 5 July at 7.30pm
Tickets on sale to the public at 10am Friday 31 January
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. – Aristotle
