About the workshop:
Young Parsifal sets out to join the court of Arthur, riding a donkey and dressed in mum’s old clothes. The old Knights of The Round Table laugh: “How will this fool find the Holy Grail!?” But Parsifal’s youth and innocence get closer than any of them, right to the edge of Heaven.
Troubadours and storytellers have been telling this story for centuries. We will look at how the use of simple household objects allows us to add a layer to our telling. So bring a toy, a spoon, a stone, an instrument – anything to hand, and let’s see how close we can get to the Holy of Holies in an experience that lies somewhere between a workshop and a laboratory.
