The White Bear King

Story - Sally Pomme Clayton 
Songs - Helen Chadwick
Sometimes you suffer for love... sometimes you suffer because of love.
Light a candle, wrap yourself in furs, dress in red, sip a glass of wine and snuggle up for the perfect valentine's romance!  Storyteller and writer Sally Pomme Clayton and singer and composer Helen Chadwick weave together words and songs, images and sounds, to conjure the eternal quest for love.  They take you on a snowy journey through a dark, Scandinavian fairytale with a polar bear and a princess, and songs drawing on poetry from Rumi to Emily Dickinson. The fairytale is set in a world of ice and snow, frost and firesides, where a princess climbs a glass mountain to set a cursed bear free, but is she brave enough to undo the terrible Troll Hag's spell? The story is intertwined with Helen’s illuminating songs, that can slow down time, bring images or emotions to life. The White Bear King  evokes other worlds and the possibility of transformation though love. Magical, humorous and tinged with darkness this performance is for adults and young people aged 12 and upwards. The performance lasts about 65- 70 minutes and is followed by a short Q and A with the artists.

"Sally Pomme Clayton  awakens the imagination of the audience." The Independent.

 "Helen Chadwick revives the ancient art of storytelling through song….   Hers is the storyteller’s gift of enchantment." Caduceus
