The Castle Builder
Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal.
Edinburgh smash hit show! The Castle Builder is an emotional and hard rocking journey into the hearts and souls that exist on the outer limits of creativity and building regulations. It tells the true story of an inmate in a Norwegian psychiatric institute who, over 5 years, built a castle on a remote headland. The show spirals outwards from personal accounts into tales of other outsider artists who’ve been inspired to build gigantic extraordinary structures, alone, in secret, and without artistic validation from the real world. Vic Llewellyn and Kid Carpet re-imagine these stories and tell them with visceral live music, dancing, projection and heartfelt storytelling.
