Moor VOICES

MATRIARCHY AND MARINE MAMMALS

‘Moor Voices’, funded by Arts Council England, will culminate in outdoor performances  on both Dartmoor and Exmoor of a play which deals with the possibility of matriarchal societies in the Bronze Age, suggested by the mythology associated with marine mammals. 

The project will involve community cast members, emerging artists and  professional practitioners who will help to deliver the project alongside the MED Theatre team. Schools in the surrounding areas of Dartmoor and Exmoor will be given the opportunity to take part in workshops inspired by the project and one of the final performances will be live-streamed to allow audiences around the world to watch online.

‘Moor Voices’ is being co-ordinated by Florrie Taylor who will be working with us for a year beginning in September 2019.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The year is 1100 BC, and a Mycenean warrior from the Mediterranean lands at Totnes to find a culture which worships marine mammals.

Is it possible that he has stepped into a matriarchal society? 

The Moor Voices project will begin development in summer 2019 and performances will take place in summer 2020 on both Dartmoor and Exmoor. 

Upcoming Workshops:

Our 2020 programme of workshops will be released in the new year.
