I sh- sh- sh- Sí’, said Gopher as, after having burrowed his way out of the Otherworld and gazing into Pooh Bear’s still black eyes, he found himself losing his bearings, tumbling once more into that placeless space from which he had so narrowly escaped.

Fiona Gannon and Liliane Puthod are looking for the Otherworld or spirit world (‘Sí’/‘Sidhe’ in Irish). It bears a relationship to the ground as the sidhe are also mounds, as in fairy or burial mounds. It is supposed to be closest at dusk and at Samhain. Before, the filí (‘poets’ in Irish, but also ‘seers’) had the job of being mediators. This involved a ritual where they would get half‑drunk and perform a chant or song on a boundary, a liminal place, so that the gods and spirits would send them knowledge. Join us Fiona Gannon and Liliane Puthod as they seek out the spirit world through story-telling and music at the boundary and stage of the Ha‑Ha.

What is the relationship between spacing out and the architecture of a stage? How does staging relate to the spectral?

Gather at the main gate at 18:30, so we can walk in as a group, wearing invisibility cloaks (supplied), to search for ghosts.

Dress warm! It will be brisk and damp and maybe windy. Hot drinks supplied.
