The World Tree | Virtual Performance Storytelling with Lisa Schneidau
In a world of magic and miracles, Yggdrasil the ash tree holds all of creation in its roots and branches. Odin the Allfather hangs upside down from the great tree, waiting for wisdom to come. But what happens when the ash tree falls sick?
Ash is one of our commonest trees, bringing many gifts: timber, fuel, tools, inspiration and protection. Now ash dieback is on the march through our countryside, and in ten years time most of our ash trees will be lost.
Lisa Schneidau tells ancient stories from the Norse, Irish and British traditions in this storytelling show, peppered with natural history and sharp observation. Find out how ash trees have always been at the centre of change and why the old stories tell us of hope and renewal.
