An Amazing Young Storyteller!
A three-faced god and a golden feather, a whispering serpent and a monk’s pilgrimage, a sheep stealer, a hooligan and a change of heart, all watched over by old Granny Chaos. Kestrel Morton weaves a stitch-tongued spell of language, enchanting all who hear it to follow its fantastical thread; into creation myths and wonder tales; through parables and into true stories, dancing on the sharp knife edge between warnings and wonder in the wild world beyond the world.
“Kestrel is a dynamic and passionate performer with a unique vision. A must-see!” -Daniel Morden
Like a magpie’s nest full of shiny trinkets this story is expertly and subtly woven from a wide blend of sources; from traditional folk tales to anecdotes heard at parties; from daydreams in old ruins to visions in a dancer’s steps; this patchwork of narratives is sewn together with a needle of language so fine that the finished fabric appears whole and completely stitch-less.
“For each action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
