Our living, breathing staircase. The stories trodden into our stairs tell tales of mischief, uncertainty and adventure. Our stairs don’t like to sit still for too long, they often have a mind of their own. Inspired by original and iconic literature on the theme of stairs, featuring writing from award winning poets such as Luke Wright and The Cornish Writer – Taran Spalding Jenkin. Iconic literature such as A.A.Milne’s ‘Halfway Down’ is also used to inspire the work.
Cornish combined arts company Cheap Date explore how the staircases we tread lead to everywhere and nowhere all at once, in this unique performance which is one for all the family. Visceral dance, spoken word, comedy and spectacle all come together to explore this intrinsic part of our everyday lives.
