The Sunflower Plot

Cartoon de Salvo

Inspired by the myth of Icarus, The Sunflower Plot was a promenade outdoor theatre event featuring gardening, pyrotechnics and comic songs performed with the help of a musical saw. It was set on the company’s own grown allotments in Farnham and Newark. Made in collaboration with The World Famous.

****   “It sees the magic in the everyday and the extraordinary in lives so ordinary they are almost invisible. It knows that the broken hearts of the small and insignificant matter as much as the great tragedies and love stories of art and literature.” (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian)
