The Big Blind
A boy stands on a lakeshore. Behind him is all he’s ever known. Ahead: a chance for love but a rather higher chance of death. He’s had a happy life, and a sheltered one. But his father gambled away that life, the debt cannot be paid in money and it won’t be his father who pays. Childhood is over…
Dominic Kelly, Bridget Marsden and Leif Ottosson combine storytelling and music into a playful and gripping performance. They bring to life an ancient full-bloodied fairy tale for modern audiences, weaving versions from Norway, Scotland, Ireland and India with contemporary Scandinavian folk music. Through it they explore the consequences for the young when older generations fail to make adult decisions.
Reviews of Dominic, Bridget & Leif’s work:
“… Makes you sparkle from the inside out. Combining magical, haunting and melodic Nordic inspired music, played effortlessly by the superbly talented Bridget Marsden and Leif Ottosson, we were taken on an expertly crafted storytelling journey by Dominic Kelly. . The stage is stripped bare with no need for props of any kind… The simplicity of this makes for a truly inspired performance…” – oneandother.com
