Spindlevine is…SPEECHLESS

Spindlevine is…SPEECHLESS

18-20 April, Ostadetheater, Amsterdam: 

An evening of musical storytelling in association with Orange Tea Theatre and Mezrab

When a storyteller is asked to give a speech at his best friend’s wedding, he finds his stories have dried up. How can he resolve the anxiety of being lost for words at the wedding, one that includes his best friend and unrequited lover? What if he is left speechless?

Spindlevine brings together the storytelling talents of Sam Morris, Marin Millenaar and Simon Hodges to tell a man being saved by his own stories. Performing live music together with and composed by Fàtima Fonte, they present a blend of modern storytelling and old-folk sensibility, drawing on old folk legends and stories of their own devising. The result is a soul-satisfying adventure of multiple stories within stories taking you up the bright mountains and down the dark valleys of your imagination with crises presented and resolved again and again and again and again.

Simon, Sam and Marin have become three of the most popular tellers at the Amsterdam’s legendary storytelling venue Mezrab. With collective experience on stage, big and small screen, and storytelling throughout Europe, this is the first time they have come together for their own show. Fàtima Fonte is a graduate of Amsterdam’s Conservatorium, specialising in European folk traditions and collective composition.
