This Woven O

Greenwich & Docklands International Festival 2022


Part sculptural installation, part theatre arena, enter a magical circular sanctuary, woven entirely from willow.

Disabled artist Oliver Macdonald’s exquisite artwork becomes the setting for Tales from The Woven O, a specially commissioned programme of accessible theatre and storytelling created and devised by Graeae’s Associate Artists.

Discover the transformative power of nature in a unique feast for the senses that will immerse you in reflections of the past, present and future.

Through spoken word, movement, and tactile interactions, alongside a beautiful soundscape, you’ll have the opportunity to move in a moon dance, touch butterfly wings and listen to wild secrets from the earth.

All performances will be accessible with BSL and audio description.
