SEED at Poole
A poetic, surprising and inspiring hitch hike on a journey from small acorns to the great oak tree.
What if there is a fella whose job it is to dig those tiny holes that seeds set root in, who charges himself with watering, composting and protecting. A fella with a pottering shed —on wheels—always elbow deep in much and always playing a tune for his charges. Well there is, and his name is Wilford.
SEED is an intimate and explosive show, full of captivating images, live and specially composed music. It is a day in the life of Wilford as he struggles against the odds and ends up sat relieved and, having been helped by festival-goers to make it through the day, in a mature apple tree that sprouts out of his shed.
