Miranda at the Barn

Fresh from the success of their critically acclaimed co-production with Scottish Opera, The Seven Deadly Sins, Company Chordelia is back on the road this autumn with Miranda, an exciting new work of dance, music and visual theatre.

Miranda is about a woman who feels lost. She is literally lost outside in the snow, a little drunk after a party, but she is emotionally lost too.

The show is about how she makes peace, how she finds herself and why she is so unhappy. It is mystical and a little supernatural.

This is a psychological thriller and a story of self-discovery. Miranda will be performed by Chordelia’s artistic director, Kally Lloyd-Jones (winner of a Herald Angel for The Seven Deadly Sins), Kimberley Lawrie (The Nutcracker and La Sylphide - Scottish Ballet) and Kirsty Pollock (The Seven Deadly Sins - Scottish Opera and The Red Room - David Hughes Dance).

Kally wanted the audience, like Miranda, to be on a journey and to wonder what was going to happen.

She thinks of it as a story that happens inside one of those snowy paperweights - snowglobes - because it is a tiny, self-contained world outside of ordinary time or space.

Miranda is unusual in its mix of movement, theatricality, music and sound world.

Miranda will be shown at Woodend Barn, Banchory, at 7.30pm today (Thursday). Tickets are £10/£8/£5 in advance. £11/£9/£5 on the door. Call (01330) 825431 or visit: www.woodendbarn.co.uk for more information.
